The College of St. Benedict/St. John's University Libraries and Instructional Technology designed a single‐session technology assignment as a way for faculty to introduce aspects of “information literacy” to their students. Students were divided into groups and given prerecorded video/audio content; they were then given an assigned perspective and asked to selectively edit a short piece together to advocate “for” or “against” a topic. Some groups were also assigned to remain “neutral” and were asked to present the information as balanced as possible. When reviewing the finished projects—the assigned perspectives for each group remained a secret and the students were asked to guess the intended tilt of each piece. Come to our session to learn more about this assignment and how it could help enrich conversations about information literacy in your classroom.
