  • Some thoughts about Information Fluency to guide us in the current development. Guidelines for this development: we are creating a 1-credit course that includes activities currently found in LS 101, but expanded and, most importantly, contextualized with an eye toward instilling basic concepts of information fluency. Clearly, this course could be 3 credits and still not cover all the possible ground that comprises Information Fluency, not to mention issues that arise from our target audience being those who are least likely to even know what their eventual academic discipline will be, much less be conversant enough with it to have an understanding of that discipline's specific information ecology (publications, info resources and repositories, active communities) and networks. Options beyond the 1-credit course include: creating 3 1-credit stacked units that expand on the concepts in (what I will call, for now) Information Fluency 101, creating a capstone course intended for seniors that would require them to delve into their discipline and community, or creating modules that are kind of a combination of the first two ideas.
