[Poster Presentation] Pre-service teachers at Boise State University enrolled in a piloted one-credit library research course, in which the POGIL method was used to teach information literacy and Web 2.0 skills. The faculty librarian employed the POGIL learning method in order to improve students’ depth of learning and increase their engagement with the information-seeking process. Learning outcomes included building pre-service teachers’ content knowledge; increasing familiarity with inquiry learning; recognizing and solving information problems using the Big6 Skills framework; evaluating primary and secondary sources; and utilizing state-funded information resources in their teaching. The overall goal of the course was two-fold: to build pre-service teachers’ information literacy skills, and help them teach future K-8 students these important skills. This poster presentation describes how POGIL was applied to two lesson plans, and includes written curricula, and the information sources used.
