The five modules cover the five learning objectives of the course, which were mapped to the ACRL Information Literacy Standards. Here are the learning objectives for this course.
- Defining Information Literacy and identifying a research topic.
- Find information effectively and efficiently by using a variety of information formats
- Understand the merits of different information formats, how they appear in the information cycle, and identify information sources as they appear in the cycle.
- Evaluate the quality and relevance of information sources
- Appropriately and ethically use information to fulfill an information need.
As part of a course design process at King, I had to map each module to course learning objectives. Once I have this basic 'map', I then went about creating course activities. This is the course alignment where I connected the modules to specific learning objectives. In the next blog post, I will discuss how and where I found activities for this course.
