The Role Of Information Literacy In Service Learning Courses: A Case Study And Best Practices, Christopher A. Sweet May 2012

The Role Of Information Literacy In Service Learning Courses: A Case Study And Best Practices, Christopher A. Sweet

Christopher A. Sweet

Service Learning is a quickly growing movement within higher education that empowers students to utilize classroom knowledge to solve a problem or effect a change within their local community. Information Literacy is critical for getting students to understand the “why” and “how” that should ground all service learning projects.

This presentation will begin with an overview of the service learning movement. Next, I will present a case study of my experiences as an embedded librarian in an Environmental Studies Senior Seminar. The presentation will conclude with a summary of emerging best practices for incorporating information literacy into service learning courses.
