How Much Time Do You Have? Quick and Flexible Activities to Add Some Metacognition to your One-shot Information Literacy Sessions

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

Information literacy sessions that focus on basic search techniques can be helpful to students, but often leave the librarian instructor wishing for more--more critical thinking, more substance, more information literacy at a deeper level. Take heart! We think carving even 5-15 minutes out of a session for a metacognitive activity can make a difference to you and the students attending the session. In this workshop, participants will choose from a menu of activities. Participants will experience each exercise from a student's vantage point, then discuss goals, implementation, and adaptation from the librarian's perspective. Each activity is adaptable and helps students think critically about information access, consumption, dissemination, or creation.

Participants will:
  • Leave with several substantive, Framework-based, adaptable activities to use with their students.
  • Be able to identify and utilize flexible, metacognitive activities for their own use in instruction
  • Be able to articulate how these activities relate to the Framework
