Information literacy aims to teach students the critical thinking skills necessary to locate, retrieve, analyze and use information. In this academic setting, these are the skills needed to find, understand and appropriately use resources to complete papers, assignments, and other academic research endeavors. In addition, these skills have a lifelong application and will be invaluable as students search for jobs and begin their professional careers.
The Five Standards
The Information Literacy Rubric used by Adelphi's General Education Committee is based on the Information Value Rubric of the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U).
Creating Effective Research Assignments
Well-designed research assignments can develop students' critical thinking skills and deepen their subject knowledge.
See "Creating Effective Research Assignments" at the Robert W. Woodfull Library, Emory Libraries & Information Technology for designing research assignment pedagogy.
Your Subject Librarian is also happy to work with you on assignment design.
