Integrating information literacy into your course

We support teachers in learning students how to become information literate by offering Information literacy skills modules which can be freely used (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license) by all UM teaching staff.

Information Literacy modules

The Information Literacy modules learn students a number of skills like: defining research questions, where and how to search for information, how to evaluate and manage that information and create new information that builds upon that. You can find these modules on the Information Literacy page.

Implementing tools for offline and online education

What do you want your students to achieve in your course? What teaching and learning activities suit these intended learning outcomes? And how to facilitate these given aspects as where are your students, how to monitor and assess them?

In addition to hosting the digital learning environment (Canvas), the Library Blended PBL Support team supports teachers in ​implementing tools for teaching and learning. We can advise on your (online) education, whether it’s about entire course design, implementing digital tools, or adapting and offering assignments for your students to perform.
