Threshold Concepts in the Information Literacy Classroom; and Teaching Toolkit

A priced ($250) online course is offered via Library Juice Academy: Threshold Concepts in the Information Literacy Classroom: Translating the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy into Our Teaching Practices. The course leader is Andrea Baer. "In this 6-week interactive workshop, participants will explore ways that the ACRL Framework does and can inform their teaching practices. Reflecting on the specific contexts and environments in which they work, participants will share their interpretations and applications of the Framework. In addition to engaging in readings and discussions related to the Framework, individuals will develop an instructional activity or lesson plan that relates to one or more of the ACRL Framework’s threshold concepts. In developing these instructional plans, participants will give particular attention to articulating student learning outcomes and developing activities that enable authentic assessment of learning."
