Integrating Information Literacy for the 21st Century: Reaching Out to Faculty and Students by Adopting Web 2.0 Principles (Learning Technology)

Wednesday, January 21 | 2:30PM–4:30PM | Curacao 1-4
Session Type: Professional Development
It is often assumed that technically sophisticated students are proficient in information competencies through their use of the Internet and popular search engines. However, course assignments frequently reflect problems such as plagiarism and inaccuracy in evaluating credible sources. Most faculty welcome support to promote information literacy skills but are often pressed for time; they don't want to be constrained in how they teach and would prefer to customize course resources. Participants will learn about UCF's institutional approach to addressing information literacy for the 21st century, which adopts principles inherent in Web 2.0 that most students and faculty have come to expect.
