Description

Some students, and some disciplines, naturally gravitate toward text as a medium. Not everyone does anymore. Why is the research paper (or another written product) still standard for information literacy assignments? For a sustainable instruction program – relevant for students, demonstrating value to administrators – at SSU Library we are implementing a new definition of "information literacy" as a metaliteracy, a skillset that encompasses many "new literacies" (as they’re often known). Grounded in the latest research in the LIS field and beyond, this presentation will share practical ways to transform research-based assignments using new (many free) multimodal tools. Empower your students by bringing in other modes of learning and expression, acknowledging that information is created, published, and distributed in many forms in the 21st century.
