Navigating the Sea of Information: Creating DLOs to Empower Students to Develop Their Own Information Literacy Compass

Using the Threshold "Searching as Strategic Exploration," presenters created a DLO (digital learning object) using the analogy of navigating the sea as a way of explaining how students can find quality, relevant information. The DLOs target choosing a topic, developing a search strategy and navigating the world of information. This presentation will talk about the process of creating, assessing, and disseminating the DLOs to both in-person and online classes. The presenters will discuss challenges and successes. Presenters used instructional design principles and experimented with emerging technologies in the DLO creation. Assessment tools also were embedded into the instruction tutorial. The presenters also will report on the findings of a survey of other librarians about how they are incorporating the new Framework into their online instruction, what tools or technologies they are using to create digital learning objects, and how they are addressing assessment.
