Information Literacy and Your Course

Topics of Information Literacy are often on instructors minds and may already be incorporated into your assignments. For instance, asking students to question the authority of an article or having them break down the contents of a photograph. Both of these exercises easily speak to the Information Literacy Standards outlined in the ACRL frame Authority is Constructed and Contextual, in which "... resources reflect their creators’ expertise and credibility, and are evaluated based on the information need and the context in which the information will be used.
