Teaching Topics: Get in the Picture - ACRL Framework and You

Class Details

This one hour webinar offers an overview of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and how health science librarians are responding to this change in information literacy standards. The Framework replaced ACRL’s Information Literacy Competency Standards (2000) in May 2016. The new ACRL Framework is a group of six conceptual understandings considered critical to organizing many other concepts and ideas about information, research, and scholarship into a coherent whole. Two added elements illustrate related learning goals: knowledge practices - demonstrations of ways in which learners can increase their understanding of these information literacy concepts, and dispositions - ways in which to address the affective, attitudinal, or valuing dimension of learning.
This class describes the new Framework and profiles it in use. Several health science librarians will present case studies on their approach to using the Framework at their institution. If time allows, discussion and sharing among participants will be included.

Learning Objectives:
• Explain the 6 Frames of the 2016 Framework for IL & their associated elements of knowledge practices & dispositions
• Explore the differences and similarities between the 2016 Framework & 2000 ACRL Standards of Information Literacy
• Describe how health science libraries and associations are responding and using the new Framework
