Credo InfoLit Modules for Faculty: Introduction

Introduction

The InfoLit Modules provide instructional materials to help librarians deepen the quality of student instruction on research strategies and techniques.

With videos, tutorials, and quizzes, the InfoLit Modules are ideal for supplementing existing lessons, for “one-shot” library instructional sessions, and for addressing gaps in classroom or online teaching.

Developed by educators, instructional designers, critical thinking subject matter experts, and librarians, this InfoLit Modules deliver a library of e-learning content with assessment tools to measure and report on student learning outcomes. They are aligned to information literacy lessons with general education classes, first-year experience, and student success initiatives

Welcome

The University of North Texas Libraries has a subscription to Credo InfoLit Modules. The InfoLit Modules provide high-quality, standards-aligned instructional materials on information literacy and critical thinking skills. They are ideal for supplementing and supporting classroom instruction, online teaching, or student remediation needs.

Modules consist of videos, tutorials and quizzes and can be integrated into your Canvas shell, or linked to directly (students are authenticated through the library proxy). Each lesson also includes a list of Student Learning Outcomes. 

Access to the student side of the entire course or the public Information Literacy Tutorial LibGuide. 

The modules are divided into the following six topics:

  • Getting started with research
  • Sources of information
  • Searching for information
  • Evaluating information
  • Presenting research and data
  • Citations and academic integrity

Under each module is a combination of tutorials, videos, and quizzes. Also, there is a pre-test and a post-test available.

For more information, contact Greg Hardin at greg.hardin@unt.edu

See the Course Outline tab for a list of topics available through our Credo InfoLit subscription. 

Promote

Promote to Faculty: Instructor Guides documents are available at the beginning of each Module (marked with an asterisk, staff/instructor view only). These documents are instructor facing only, and include the learning objectives and related information literacy standards for each Module, as well as topics for discussion and activities (for class or additional assignments), and many have relevant websites or readings.

This brief two-minute video can be used to promote the InfoLit Modules to faculty, and explains how the InfoLit Modules can be incorporated into existing courses and used to measure students’ information literacy skills. Feel free to use this video in faculty presentations, emails, and other orientation or promotional materials.
