Information Literacy as Smuggled Cargo: Embedding Learning Outcomes Using Curriculum Mapping

Thursday, May 11th

1:30-2:30 pm

Presenters: Natalie Burclaff, Head of Information Literacy Initiatives, Affiliate Assistant Professor, Langsdale Library, Learning Commons, University of Baltimore, and

Kristin Conlin, Reference and Instruction Librarian, Affiliate Assistant Professor, Langsdale Library, Learning Commons, University of Baltimore

Libraries are traditionally perceived as the place where information literacy originates and lives. However, there are many experiences outside the library where information literacy skills can be developed and reinforced. Curriculum mapping identifies places where information literacy skills are practiced, or could be embedded, outside traditional library information instruction sessions. This discussion and presentation will describe how one university used curriculum mapping to integrate information literacy goals into the larger academic environment (or “educational process”) experience. Learn different approaches to curriculum mapping, discuss the benefits and limitations, and create your own maps which will lay the framework for a holistic approach to information literacy education.
