Rethinking Library Instruction: A Complete Curriculum for Understanding, Navigating, and Using Libraries for Duke Freshmen
Repository Usage Stats
This final project is a curriculum for library instruction for first year students at Duke University. I have created a set of learning goals and outcomes that first year students should be able to achieve for academic success. These goals and outcomes are derived from the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. The ACRL goals are broad and designed for all types of higher education students, so I have narrowed down the goals for students at Duke. In order to teach these learning goals, I have created eleven lessons and assignments, designed to teach students specific goals and outcomes. The final aspect of the curriculum is assessment of both the lessons and the instructors, so the curriculum is able assess its effectiveness and adapt to better teach students.
