  • 15. 1.  Introductory Library Session:  Why You (and your students) should do it
    • Why you should schedule a Library session for your FYS:
    •  
      • Will help your students build research skills
      • Increased awareness of many resources and tools available
      • Will help us (the Library faculty) to better serve your classes in the future
      • We are willing to be flexible!
      • Your class doesn't need to be "research oriented" to benefit
      • Sign up online: http://lib.drake.edu/webforms/fys-library-instruction-request or call me at x4821
  • 16. 2. Multiple Sessions: Why you should consider it
    • You may also want to schedule multiple Library sessions for your FYS (or any other class you teach!):
    •  
      • "Followup" session would deepen students' exposure to Info Lit principles and skills
      • Willing to tailor (length, location, approach) to your schedule and needs
      • Would allow in-depth coverage of individual resources (such as those I'll highlight later in the talk)
  • 17. 3. Information Literacy - New Models
    • Need for a more flexible and easily-understood approach to Information Literacy
      • Invariably begins with "What is Information Literacy anyway?"
  • 18. Information Literacy - New Models
    • INFORMATION 
    • LITERACY
    • Technological Literacy, Computer Literacy, "Information Technology," tech training, eportfolios, "library training," etc.
  • 19. Information Literacy - New Models
    • So, what is it?
    • Bruce's Opinion (No. 1!)
      • Information Literacy is a Synthetic discipline, based around a unique Perspective :
        • That the "information rich, knowledge poor" world we live in must always be approached critically
        • That there are certain ethical questions that are inherent in the adoption of new technologies
        • That certain technological skills and dispositions are necessary, but not sufficient, to achieving "literacy"
  • 20. Information Literacy - New Models
    • Bruce's Opinion (No. 1, continued)
      • Information Literacy is a Synthetic discipline, based around a unique Perspective :
        • That Information Literacy is a " gateway literacy" that opens the door to discussion of " emerging literacies " (a.k.a "trans-literacies") ranging from:
          •   Economic and financial literacy
          •   Visual literacy
          • Media literacy
          • Multicultural literacy
  • 21.  
  • 22. Information Literacy - New Models
    • Discussion of Library Faculty and others who teach Info Lit:
    •  
      • Recognize the problems with the term "Information Literacy"
      • Recognize the problems with re-naming, or embracing one of the "trendy" alternatives ("Information Fluency")
      • Still, the need for a "uniquely Drake approach" was felt
  • 23. Information Literacy - New Models
    • Re-casting Info Lit:
    •  
      • Two-pronged approach:  
        • One aimed at Gen Ed, 
        • the other at upper-level (discipline-based) and graduate education
      • Gen Ed approach referred to as:  "Digital and Media Literacy "
  • 24. Digital and Media Literacy 
    • What is Digital and Media Literacy in the Drake context?
    •  
      • Flexible approach:   Either course-based, or session-based, or anywhere in between
      • Focus:   Skills and dispositions students need to excel in their general education coursework, as well as prepare for their upper-level coursework
      • Collaborative:   Designed to work with faculty at all levels, either other Gen Ed instructors, or address the needs of the disciplines
  • 25. Digital and Media Literacy 
    • What is Media Literacy in the Drake context?
    •  
      • Recognizes that students get their news/information from "non-traditional" sources:
        • Film
          • Feature
          • TV
          • YouTube
        • Podcasts
        • "Social" media: Facebook /Twitter / RSS feeds
    •  
  • 26. Digital and Media Literacy 
    • What is Media Literacy in the Drake context?
    •  
      • Such sources raise serious (and interesting) issues:
        • No, or little, "vetting" of stories / pieces
        • When "everyone" is a reporter, ethical issues abound
        • Even more "trusted" sources of media information (e.g., documentaries) have "hidden" agenda that often reflect the nature of their format: "Honest Truths" http://bit.ly/c5ZJer
