“Sunrise, Sunset”: A Reflection on Assessment and the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education

This is a guest post at ACRLog.org, published on January 27, 2015, in which I reflect on the relationship between the Framework and assessment of student learning in and through our information literacy programs, as well as how this relates to the eventual rescission of the Information Literacy Competency Standards (formally rescinded a year and a half later on June 25, 2016). Note that the timing of the post was about a week before the ACRL Board of Directors moved to 'file' the Framework (on February 2, 2015); a year later the Framework was formally adopted by the ACRL Board on January 11, 2016. Though the post is almost two years old (as of this writing), the ideas in it may prove valuable to those seeking to integrate the Framework into their local curricula through the cyclical program review process that all curricula undergo.

Framing New Frames: Expanding the Conceptual Space and Boundaries

PDF of PPT Slides from Presentation at LOEX Fall Focus 2015. The Framework issues an invitation to exploration and location adaptation that is worthy of attention. This presentation accepts that invitation and provides cases studies in developing additional frames/concepts - "information social justice" and "information apprenticeship in community" - as well as a process for articulating additional frames.
