Framing Information Literacy Webcast Series

Framing Information Literacy cover

Framing Information Literacy coverMany librarians struggle with the best methods, activities, and practices for teaching information literacy. Developing learning outcomes and activities, overcoming student and faculty apathy toward information literacy instruction, and meeting instruction and institutional goals can be difficult if you’re feeling overwhelmed with instructional jargon, or uncertain in your teaching due to no formal training. The Framing Information Literacy webcast series shares lesson plans grounded in theory and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This six-part webcast series provides approachable explanations of the ACRL Frames, various learning theory, pedagogy, and instructional strategies, and how they are used to inform the development of information literacy lesson plans and learning activities. Complete details about each individual webcast are available on the ACRL website.

Individuals and groups who register for the full six-part series receive a complimentary set of the Framing Information Literacy ebooks and a certificate of completion upon conclusion of the final webcast.
