Information Literacy

This track focuses on modern information literacy applied outside the library: in the classroom and in other areas of life. It focuses on supporting diversity and inclusion through information literacy, particularly in terms of incorporating lived experience and accepting students’ backgrounds and needs.

Specific activities within the track focus on (a) fostering intellectual and artistic creativity in a digital environment, (b) applying educational theory to support a diverse student population, and (c) turning major pieces of social justice and critical pedagogical theory into action.

Common themes that would run throughout specific activities in the track include seeking and assessing information online within multiple discipline areas, creativity and the digital/human environment, supporting diverse groups of students through information literacy, and interpreting relevant bodies of theory through practice.
