Information Literacy is a vital skill that community colleges across the country address in a variety of ways, but many faculty struggle with reinforcing such skills in the classroom. There are significant differences in student knowledge levels and faculty approaches to providing information literacy education across the teaching modalities of face-to-face, hybrid and online. These inconsistencies are further complicated by the development of a new information literacy document recently adopted by the Association for College and Research Libraries: the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (January 2016). Thus, a discrepancy currently exists between how faculty and librarians are addressing the elements of information literacy education and the current ACRL Framework. To address this discrepancy and to support consistency in information literacy education across courses, instructors, and modalities, the presenters applied for and were awarded funding from the VCCS Paul Lee Grant for the summer of 2017. Their project is an online learning module developed in Blackboard and compatible with other learning management systems. As an “open” (i.e. Creative Commons licensed) resource, it can also be easily adapted to fit the needs of a particular college, course, or instructor. In this session, presenters will demonstrate the module, discuss preliminary results, and provide instructions on accessing and integrating the module in your Blackboard courses.
