WGIL Gen Ed Info Management task force
« on: March 21, 2014, 10:49:35 AM »
During our January meeting, Trudi Jacobson kindly updated everyone on the efforts she’s involved in with the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force.  The draft of the revision is being released in two parts.  The first part has been released already. The second part will come out some time in Spring/Summer. For more information, take a look at the website the taskforce has set up. See the links below.
Task Force Blog (the recordings and Q&A from the public forums held in October are interesting, forum presentation recommended)
Task Force Recommendations
The group agreed that it would be beneficial to ‘piggy back’ on the release of the ACRL first draft, and have our own recommendations concerning the SUNY GER Info Management competencies prepared and ready to be shared shortly after.
We also discussed the responses to the survey we sent out. During our March meeting we set up several tasks to start working on simultaneously.  1) Using the responses to the survey to start forming our own suggested revision for the Info Management Competency. 2) Coming up with some basic rational for why we think a revision would be a good idea. 3) Providing some feedback to ACRL on the first part of the draft that's been released. 4) Determining whether/what ACRL Framework threshold concepts are already being met on your campus.

We'll be meeting again in April.
