Lehigh Valley Chapter of the Pennsylvania Library Associations's 2015 Spring Conference, May 28, 2015, Allentown, PA

Abstract: The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education represents a shift in our collective approach to instruction by inviting practitioners to deeply engage the complex concepts that underpin the abilities and dispositions that develop learners’ information literacy. This presentation will map this shift by highlighting concrete approaches for and offering examples of using the Framework in instructional practice.

  1. 1. Donna Witek, The University of Scranton ~ @donnarosemary Lehigh Valley Chapter of the PaLA 2015 Annual Spring Conference May 28, 2015 Flexible Frames for Pedagogical Practice: Using the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education #LVPALA
  2. 2. http://tinyurl.com/WitekLVPALA2015 Today’s slides can be found at: #LVPALA
  3. 3. 1. THEORY CRASH COURSE 2. PRAXIS with the Framework –An Excursus on Learning Outcomes 3. ACTIVITY Today’s Passage through Theory to Praxis #LVPALA
  4. 4. • Threshold Concept Theory (“TC theory”) • Understanding By Design (UbD, “backward design”) • Metaliteracy • Critical Information Literacy (“crit IL”, #critlib) Theoretical Approaches to the Framework #LVPALA
  5. 5. • Meyer & Land (2003); Brunetti, Hofer, & Townsend (2015) • “core ideas and processes that define the ways of thinking and practicing for a discipline” (Townsend, Brunetti, & Hofer, 2011) • thresholds, liminality, stuck places, “ah ha” lightbulb moments • Examples in practice: Miller (2015); Goodman, Godbey, & Wainscott (2015) Threshold Concept Theory #LVPALA
  6. 6. • Wiggins & McTighe (2005) • “How do we make it more likely—by our design—that more students really understand what they are asked to learn?” (Wiggins & McTighe, 2005) • backward design, spiral curriculum, big ideas + enduring understandings • Examples in practice: Pagowsky (2014); Houtman (2015) Understanding by Design (UbD) #LVPALA
  7. 7. • Mackey & Jacobson (2011, 2014a, 2014b) • “expands the scope of traditional information skills … to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments” (Mackey & Jacobson, 2014a) • Non-linear decentered matrix of behaviors, literacy about one’s own literacy, participatory environments, “producers not consumers” • Examples in practice: Witek & Grettano (2014); Thomas & Hodges (2015) Metaliteracy #LVPALA
  8. 8. • Elmborg (2006); Accardi, Drabinski, & Kumbier (2010) • IL as “the comprehension of an entire system of thought and the ways that information flows in that system” as well as “the capacity to critically evaluate the system itself” (Elmborg, 2006). • myth of neutrality; power structures underpinning information; information privilege • Examples in practice: Pagowsky (2014); Wallis (2015) Critical Information Literacy #LVPALA
  9. 9. THEORY PRAXIS Information Literacy Instruction Supported by the Framework #LVPALA
  10. 10. “Information literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.” Matrix of theories and approaches to teaching, learning, and information Framework for IL (2015) “Information literacy is a set of abilities requiring individuals to ‘recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information.’” Competency-based education IL Standards (2000) Standards to Framework #LVPALA
  11. 11. 6 Frames, each with an IL concept, Knowledge Practices, and Dispositions Frames focus on the constructed and contextual nature of authority, information creation as a process, the differing types of value placed on information, research as inquiry, scholarship as conversation, and searching as strategic exploration. IL learning outcomes are locally developed, situated, and contextualized. Framework for IL (2015) 5 Standards, each with Performance Indicators and Outcomes Standards focus on determining an information need, and accessing, evaluating, and using information ethically to meet that need. IL learning outcomes are standardized and universal. IL Standards (2000) Standards to Framework #LVPALA
  12. 12. • Multiple learning domains –behavioral (skills) –cognitive (knowledge) –dispositional (values/attitude) –metacognitive (reflection) An Excursus on Learning Outcomes #LVPALA • Multiple levels –classroom-level –course-level –program-level –institution-level See Sweet (2010) for a useful overview of writing learning outcomes for information literacy.
  13. 13. First-Year Writing Spring 2015 3 sections, 2 instructors, 1-shot Assignments: researched argument OR researched proposed solution to an identified problem An Excursus on Learning Outcomes #LVPALA By the end of this information literacy instruction session, students will: • Brainstorm research questions, search terms, and information types/formats related to their research topics • Identify search tools that match their information need(s) • Practice searching for and locating possible information sources for their research projects • Use the search process as an opportunity to strategically explore their research topics and questions
  14. 14. First-Year Writing Spring 2015 3 sections, 2 instructors, 1-shot Assignments: researched argument OR researched proposed solution to an identified problem An Excursus on Learning Outcomes #LVPALA By the end of this unit, students will: • Generate appropriate writing topics and research questions • Develop effective search strategies for gathering information • Gather and evaluate information in terms of both relevance and reliability These SLOs are both course-level (WRTG 107) and program-level (FYW Program) and map back to my classroom-level SLOs.
  15. 15. • We are now writing our own outcomes. • Collaboration with faculty across disciplines is essential. • Invitation to embrace “slow learning” (Mader, 2015), in ourselves and our students. –Use the Framework to: •REINTERPRET the IL work you are already doing •TRANSFORM your IL work moving forward Implications for Practice/Praxis: #LVPALA
  16. 16. • What is one example in your own IL work where this concept is already addressed? 5 minutes • Practice writing learning outcomes for your conceptual frame. • Pick a context (classroom- level, course-level, program- level, institution-level) • Pick a domain (skill, knowledge, value/attitude, metacognition) 10 minutes • Divide into groups • Pick a conceptual frame –Authority is constructed and contextual –Information creation as a process –Information has value –Research as inquiry –Scholarship as conversation –Searching as strategic exploration ACTIVITY #LVPALA
