Mission & Goals

1 fast forward
1. Fast forward
  • What problems do your students have learning to be information literate?
    • Communication – ability to read, skim, spell, use grammar
    • Attachment to natural language – entire question
    • Awareness of library resources
    • Need preparation as learners – how to instill passion for learning – IL is more than finding an answer – need to be invested in learning process – persistence and patience
    • Instructors aren’t always comfortable with IL and may not know how to use some of the tools
    • Wiki for students – create a nicer way for them to engage creatively with the resources – students need to be excited about it and understand it – research needs to be fun & collaborative
    • Values of the academy are different from those of the real world
    • They don’t know what they don’t know – they think they are already good at research
    • They need to know the why as well as the how
    • Students lack the spark of intellectual curiosity – we need to meet them where their passions are
    • How does real life research compare with what we ask students to do?
    • Is the information we ask them to use appropriate to their level, need, etc. Are faculty and librarians working together to address this?
    • Lack basic skills, such as using an index – some faculty assume students got IL somewhere else
    • Basic problems: lack $ for computers, software, books; lack time,
    • ESL – language or cultural
    • Limitations of our tools – databases aren’t all FT and students think they should be
    • Students can’t distinguish between different kinds of information
    • Don’t know how to sort through a list of results
    • Confuse IL with technology literacy
    • Can’t identify information needs –
    • Need more time for research
    • Assignment design – hobbled by the assignment or asked to use resources that don’t match the task
