An information literate person recognizes a need for information and knows where and how to get that need satisfied. It is becoming more important to teach information literacy to students due to the overwhelming amount of free information produced on the web. Students today believe they know how to search the web and get needed information, but many do not decipher the merits of the source when selecting websites to use in a scholarly research assignment. Students need to know how and when to search the Internet for information. They also need to realize the importance and availability of library resources as students, professionals, and citizens.
Embed your favorite LibGuide right into Blackboard. Just copy and paste the LibGuide URL and add it to your course resources or lessons page.
Assigning videos as class projects is a great way to encourage students to interact with course material in new ways which may be more relevant to how they like to learn. There are special considerations to be made for media projects-- including copyright compliance, use of appropriate sources, and citing sources properly in a digital work. Librarians are available to assist by way of instructional research sessions, one-on-one and small group appointments, and are also available to help you design your next project. Assistance with available free technology sources is also available.
