Information Literacy and Cooperative Learning: A Global Housing Project
Public Services Quarterly Volume 6, Number 1, ISSN 1522-8959
Close collaboration between faculty and librarians yields a seamless blend of core subject information and information seeking/evaluation skills. This article examines how collaboration and the integration of information literacy skills into an undergraduate global housing unit affects the ability of students to locate and evaluate materials for a global housing unit comparing housing in five countries with that of housing in the United States. Through use of ACRL Information Literacy Standards and the cognitive dimension process of the revised Bloom's taxonomy, the librarian and the faculty member collaborated to present a small group process incorporating several learning techniques in a seamless learning unit.
