All Sorts of Authority: Guiding Students Over the Threshold in Information Literacy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
While the ACRL Framework promotes the use of threshold concepts in information literacy, how these concepts are implemented in the classroom is left open to individual instructors. This session will highlight one useful method for engaging students in a discussion about authority. This very simple activity challenges students to look beyond “good” and “bad” sources to see how authority is constructed and how it can be deployed in different contexts. The session will include a demonstration of the activity followed by a discussion.
