Using Skills Modules in TeachingInformation Literacy
The Information literacy skills modules can be used by all UM teaching staff to provide their students with a common ground to information literacy. Every skills module can be completed separately and can consist of a generic part and discipline specific parts, based on student and/or teacher needs.
Using the skills modules in your courses
Course coordinators, teaching staff, and tutors can use the information literacy skills modules in their courses to integrate information and digital literacy into their teaching. The skills modules are small, manageable chunks of education and can get easily integrated as exercises in any course at our university.
Skills modules can be integrated into your course in two ways. You can share the URL link to the module with your students, or you can embed the skills module into your Canvas course.
If you wish to embed one of these modules to integrate information and digital literacy into your teaching, please read how to embed these modules (via Canvas login) or contact us via Ask Your Librarian.
