The Creative Deliverable: A Short Communication
Hartel, Jenna; Noone, Rebecca; Oh, Christie
Journal of Education for Library and Information Science, v58 n3 p176-183 Sum 2017
This paper encourages educators in library and information science (LIS) to adopt the "creative deliverable," that is, an assignment that gives students the freedom to display their understanding of course material in an almost unrestricted range of alternative formats and genres, while retaining some key features of traditional scholarship. Using the traditional essay as a point of comparison, we define the creative deliverable; profile its application in a library and information science course; display three examples; detail important practical considerations for its use; and share the student perspective.
