Wondering how Credo InfoLit works in real-life classrooms? This brief case study illustrates how Teri Catanio, an instructor and Director of the Career Center at Cairn University,PA, used Credo InfoLit to increase her students' research and writing abilities--the gains were immediate and persisted long-term, making the professors work easier and the students more successful.
Credo InfoLit gives you a “low lift” option to start incorporating information literacy instruction in your class and assignments. If your class already focuses on information literacy already, Credo InfoLit can complement what you’re doing through 60+ videos, tutorials, and assessments. You can increase instructional time for information literacy by shifting lecture-based instruction to homework (flipped classroom), allowing for hands-on, high impact learning when students come to seminar.
A few ways you can utilize Credo InfoLit in your course:
1. For Faculty: Share Links Before Seminar in Course Announcements or Emails
Limited time during seminar with students to teach them the skills they need to successfully complete their assignment?
2. Course Designers: Scaffold throughout your Course
Are you concerned about providing enough engaging support for students while they complete their research papers and assignments?
3. For Faculty: As a Remedial Tool
Do some of your students need a refresher or additional help with how to do research (transfer students, non-traditional students, at risk students)?
