Teaching Innovation Projects


Library and Information Science, Faculty of Information and Media Studies


Information literacy skills are core university competencies that should be mindfully woven into course curriculum (ACRL, 2000; Grafstein, 2002). Creative alternatives to the typical research paper have been recommended by librarians and scholars as a valuable means of developing information literacy skills in students (Calkins and Kelley, 2007; Mahaffy, 2006; King’s College, 2004). In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (ACRL, 2000) and, through group discussion and active learning activities, participants will be provided with basic tools for designing assignment alternatives to the typical research paper that will creatively develop information literacy skills in their students.
