ILO 2: Technology & Information Literacy: Assignments

Framework for Teaching

The Association of College and Research Libraries has created the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This document provides six frames, each outlining a threshold concept for information literacy.  The conceptional nature of the document allows for flexibility in implementation across skill level and discipline.  This document is the basis for Lincoln's ILO 2.
