Info Literacy Curriculum #2 – Basic Search, and Info Literacy Curriculum #3 – Evaluating Online Information are multimedia instructional presentations I made for my Reference and Information Services class at GSLIS.
They’re the first pieces of a planned 8-10 part multimedia information and technology literacy curriculum that I hope to complete over time. These are first attempts at building curriculum, and as I revise them over time, I’d like to simplify them more, be more thoughtful and intentional about designing them for a particular level of learner aptitude and knowledge, and resolve some confusion I had in making them over what medium they’re intended for.
I went in intending to build modules for in-person teaching, but I think the combination of using and testing them in an online-only environment and realizing I had to turn them in for my class as standalone objects without an accompanying presentation pushed me over time towards creating standalone online modules for independent learning.
As I learn more about teaching information literacy and building curriculum and instructional materials, I want to try to adapt these modules to in-person and other contextual uses over time, and to design future modules with said need for situational adaptation in mind.
