Description

Building dispositions "values, attitudes, and habits of mind" is an integral part of the learning process. The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy provides suggested sets of dispositions for each information literacy concept. But what are some practical strategies we can use to develop student mindsets about information literacy? One way is to embed information literacy assignments into foundational courses that use active, student-centered teaching methods. This presentation will discuss a librarian-faculty collaboration at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo where "learn by doing" library assignments are integrated into Inquiry-based Learning (IBL) Mathematics courses. Attendees will see sample assignments and student work that demonstrates how information literacy dispositions fit well with assignments on effective thinking, and take away ideas for finding new "footholds" in the curriculum.
