One of the competencies associated with the undergraduate curriculum at VCU is information fluency, acquired through coursework which helps students "navigate library-related services (on-line and on-site) as well as evaluate the legitimacy of sources of information". In an area of discussion awash with (often competing) definitions, standards, professional guidelines, and assessment approaches, what it means to be an "information fluent", lifelong-learner remains a topic of on-going debate. In this Brown Bag Lunch, we will continue the discussion about information fluency across the VCU curriculum--examining where we are and where we might go--and consider how alternative visions of the "information fluency" concept (e.g., "information literacy", "metaliteracy", "transliteracy", "cyberliteracy", "digital literacy", "media literacy", "visual literacy") might contribute to our teaching and students' learning on campus.
