Watch this Space: Emerging Trends in Credit Bearing Information Literacy Courses

Library credit courses have traditionally approached teaching information literacy by focusing on the academic research process. This process includes learning library-related skills, such as finding and evaluating sources found in library databases and catalogs. However, there has been an increasing momentum behind the idea of de-centering the library from information literacy instruction and focusing on skills and concepts that explore information literacy outside of the library setting.

This panel presentation will explore how several academic librarians are pushing the boundaries on information literacy instruction in the credit-bearing setting in the areas of content, grading, assignments, and pedagogy. Classes discussed will include:

*An introductory face-to-face course that incorporates critical information literacy, critical pedagogy, open pedagogy, and Wikipedia-based assignments

*An introductory online course that challenges students to be agents of social change and incorporates open pedagogy, problem-based learning, and un-grading

*An upper-level course that explores fake news, junk science, and fact-checking through the lenses of cognitive biases and logical fallacies

*An upper-level discipline-specific course that incorporates entrepreneurial pedagogy and non-traditional research assignments
