Fostering Information Literacy in Your Writing Intensive Course

Conley House, 602 Sanford Street


Presented by Joe Askins, Head of Instructional Services, University of Missouri Libraries

Writing intensive courses give students the opportunity to consider what constitutes scholarship and authority within a particular discipline. An information-literate student recognizes the constructed and contextual nature of authority, approaches research as a process of inquiry that examine increasingly complex or new questions, and understands scholarship as a sustained discourse within a community of researchers and professionals. Using the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education as a guide for discussion, participants in this workshop will explore ways to incorporate information literacy concepts and practices into writing intensive assignments.
