Information Literacy Summit
Teaching for Curiosity, Creativity, and Action
Morraine Valley Community College, April 2018
Larissa Garcia, Information Literacy Librarian / Art Subject Specialist, Northern Illinois University
Jessica Labatte, Faculty, Studio Arts (Photography), Northern Illinois University
Although curriculum mapping is a valuable way to strategize information literacy instruction efforts, it can be challenging when learning outcomes are not connected to traditional research and scholarship, such as the objectives for studio art courses. This session describes a collaboration to use the Framework for Information Literacy as a map to integrate IL learning throughout a photography program, emphasizing the role of research and information literacy in artistic practice in several courses. Presenters will also share assignments and activities designed to foster the connection between information literacy, creativity, and social justice that can be adapted to other disciplines.
