Designing Information Literacy Instruction

Designing Information Literacy Instruction

This book will help instruction librarians create instruction for all types of environments and in all modes of delivery. It includes exercises and worksheets to help the reader work through the instructional design process.

Designing Information Literacy Instruction: The Teaching Tripod Approach provides a working knowledge of how instructional design (ID) applies to information literacy instruction (ILI). Its "how to do it" approach is directed at instruction librarians in all library settings and deals with both face-to-face and online ID issues. No matter where an instruction librarian works, whom they are teaching, or what delivery mode they will be using, the ID process remains the same: Start with the user and the user's needs. Identify the instructional problem(s). Develop outcomes that address these problem(s). Use outcomes to drive both the learning activities included and the assessments used to measure the attainment of the success of the instructional endeavor. This book will help instruction librarians create instruction for all types of environments and in all modes of delivery. It includes exercises and worksheets to help the reader work through the instructional design process. Based on Kaplowitz’s innovative Teaching Tripod model, it will help instructional librarians clearly define the crucial links between outcomes, activities and assessment.

Ideas, Strategies, and Scenarios in Music Information Literacy offers expert guidance on planning and implementing information literacy instruction programs in a wide range of instructional situations and theoretical frameworks. The result is an exploration of various structures for engaging music students as reflective and engaged participants in today's complex information environments. This rich time of change brings renewed interest in information literacy instruction and developing new skill sets for the shifting paradigms in librarianship, as recent educational reform movement shifts information literacy away from competency standards to a more complex set of core concepts associated with metaliteracy and cognition. This transformed world requires library environments to be inclusive with the resulting cultural evolution prompting a re-examination of how best to serve a population that represents diversity of all kinds: sexual, political, disabilities, national origin, socioeconomic, religion, linguistic, body size, age, and other dimensions. As music and performing arts librarians revisit information literacy instruction, this essential book serves as a guide to creating and maintaining quality instruction programs. Music Information Literacy includes a bibliography of a critical articles, books, association documents, and government data on information literacy in academic library instruction, intended to supplement the chapters on instructional theories and techniques, instructional modes, and building relationships and collaborations presented in this book.
