Do Harper College students have Information Literacy skills?
Information Literacy is one of Harper’s five General Education Learning Outcomes. The definition reads: “Apply a variety of credible sources to support a given topic.”
Harper will conduct its next large-scale assessment of the Information Literacy outcome in Spring 2020.
What does this mean for me?
- Courses mapped to the Information Literacy outcome will be randomly selected at the beginning of the Spring 2020 semester.
- Faculty members teaching the selected courses will be notified at the beginning of the Spring 2020 semester.
- The Library will also be hosting a session during Orientation Week titled “Teaching Information Literacy Across the Disciplines.”
- Additional information and instructions will be provided during Orientation Week.
The assessment will be conducted by the Learning Assessment Committee, the Information Literacy Work Group, and the Outcomes Assessment Office.
