Equitable Belonging via Information Literacy: Amanda Izenstark, MLIS • University of Rhode Island, University Libraries • POD22, November 17, 2022 Equitable Belonging via Information Literacy Empowering Teachers to Empower Learners
Date of Original Version
As critical educators and learners, we continually encounter a changing information landscape necessitating (re)considerations of our responsibilities as consumers and producers of knowledge. This workshop offers a window into a High Impact Teaching Seminar created by librarians and educational developers at the University of Rhode Island to intentionally integrate accessible Information Literacy (IL) skills for all students. Through a reflective exploration of IL threshold concepts such as scholarly conversation, authority, information creation, and strategic exploration, participants will learn about the seminar’s theoretical framework and structure, engage in sample activities, and consider possible applications at their own institutions.
Virtual presentation for the 47th Annual POD Network Conference (POD22).
