Online course: Developing Signature Pedagogies in Information Literacy
ACRL is running a priced online course Developing Signature Pedagogies in Information Literacy from 17 February 2020 to 14 March 2020. "Signature pedagogies are specific ways of teaching that move students to develop the habits of mind of a professional or disciplinarian (Ciccone, 2009). This concept is widely discussed in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning literature in other disciplines, but has yet to make its way into common conversation in information literacy. Throughout the four weeks, participants will spend time in conversation to deepen their understanding of the mental processes they go through when they work with information, while also discussing commonly used pedagogies to teach information literacy. Participants can expect to engage in readings and discussion about signature pedagogies. The end product in the course will be a lesson plan that includes the use of an identified pedagogy that teaches habits of mind necessary to be literate in information." Costs are: ACRL member: US $135; ALA member: $175; Nonmember: $205; Student: $75
