  • My personal experience with research paper writing services was highly positive. I sent a request to ⇒ ⇐ and found a writer within a few minutes. Because I had to move house and I literally didn’t have any time to sit on a computer for many hours every evening. Thankfully, the writer I chose followed my instructions to the letter. I know we can all write essays ourselves. For those in the same situation I was in, I recommend ⇒ ⇐.

  3. 3. Kahoot! One of the ACRL frames refers to “accessing needed information effectively and efficiently” There are 7 ACRL frames The Standards specify learning outcomes; the Framework’s outcomes are created by the instructor Faculty involvement is critical when using the Framework The Standards focus on info consumption; the Frames focus on info production and consumption True or False Questions:
  4. 4. IL Framework Addresses 4 domains: cognitive, affective, behavioral, metacognitive Learners considered information consumers and information producers Includes 6 related, overlapping frames Learning outcomes and assessments created by individual instruction librarians Faculty involvement in developing instruction and learning outcomes is crucial IL Standards Emphasis on behavioral and cognitive domains Learners considered information consumers 5 standards, 22 performance indicators Standards/P.I.s can be used as learning outcomes Meshes with one-shot instruction paradigm IL Frames versus Standards Infographic Handout #1
  5. 5. The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (2015), developed by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), is a guiding document about information literacy. The Framework is organized into six frames, each of which outlines a concept central to information literacy. Think critically about information— whether it’s from a blog post, a book, or a peer-reviewed journal article. Ask questions about the author(s), the purpose, and the context of the information. Recognize the value of diverse ideas and worldviews. Give credit to the original ideas of others through proper attribution and citation. Recognize your opportunity for multiple roles – as a contributor or a creator as well as a consumer of information.

  6. 6. Understand that the research process gives you the chance to participate in an ongoing scholarly conversation in which information consumers and creators come together and negotiate meaning. You have an opportunity to contribute to the conversation! Approach research as open-ended exploration and engagement with information. Tap into your intellectual curiosity, ask questions, and be flexible – ambiguity can help the research process! Realize that information sources vary in content, format, and relevance to your needs, depending on the nature of your search and the scope of your research. Be flexible and understand that your first attempts at searching are just the starting point. Keep asking questions! Consider the characteristics of information resources that indicate how and for whom they were created. Understand that information may be perceived differently based on the format in which it is presented. Handout #2B
  7. 7. AIIRSS  An acronym  Represents the six ACRL frames  A mnemonic device  Word/Image association  A meaningful brand  Logo that includes the acronym  Recognizable  Used consistently on all materials

  9. 9. ACRL Frames Scenario Activity  Work in pairs to address assigned scenario  Use the AIIRSS Design Template to guide discussion  Choose the ACRL frame that is most relevant to the scenario (there may be more than one)  We will discuss results at the end of the activity Handouts #4A – 4E
  10. 10. Activity Discussion  Please share your results with the group  Also consider:  Do these examples differ from the type of IL instruction that you engage in on a regular basis?
