First Thoughts on Implementing the Framework for Information Literacy
Jacobson, Trudi E.; Gibson, Craig
Communications in Information Literacy, v9 n2 p102-110 2015
Following the action of the ACRL Board in February 2015 in accepting the "Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education" as one of the "constellation of documents" that promote and guide information literacy instruction and program development, discussion in the library community continues about steps in implementing the "Framework." The spectrum of possibilities for implementing the "Framework" encompasses both curricular and co-curricular settings within colleges and universities. At this early stage of implementing the "Framework," we suggest five curricular and instructional structures that can be thought of as a continuum of deepened engagement with its core ideas. The second half of this article presents two examples that show possible ways to incorporate elements of the "Framework": a redesigned single instruction session and a course that illustrates a hybrid model blending the unit-based assignments with a course redesign.
