Using cases for information literacy

I saw a nice blog post from Spencer Jardine on the Idaho State University blog. He talks about
Spackman, A. and Camacho, L. (2009) "Rendering Information Literacy Relevant: A Case-Based Pedagogy." The Journal of Academic Librarianship, 35 (6), 548-54. (subscriber only access, abstract is here)
and their wiki of "Cases", business-focused problem scenarios that students could be given to work through, which is at at (part of the article describes some of these cases, then it gives results from a simple student satisfaction survey)
Spencer's post is at
