  5. 5. Braided Process In 2004, Rolf Norgaard called for a hybrid approach to information literacy education, arguing that “writing theory and pedagogy can and should have a constitutive influence on our conception of information literacy.” For Norgaard, such a pedagogy requires “a partnership” characterized by “genuine intellectual engagement.” On college and university campuses, it is not uncommon for libraries, composition programs, and writing centers to establish partnerships in pursuit of this goal: facilitating the acquisition of research and writing as processes not meant to “unbraid” but as complex, demanding, and interdependent activities (Fister).

  7. 7. ACRL In addition, this Framework draws significantly upon the concept of metaliteracy, which offers a renewed vision of information literacy as an overarching set of abilities in which students are consumers and creators of information who can participate successfully in collaborative spaces. Metaliteracy demands behavioral, affective, cognitive, and metacognitive engagement with the information ecosystem. This Framework depends on these core ideas of metaliteracy, with special focus on metacognition, or critical self-reflection, as crucial to becoming more self-directed in that rapidly changing ecosystem.
