From Passive Participants to Active Learners: Open Educational Resources as a Vehicle to Move Beyond One-shot Library Instruction
In this article, the authors argue that partnering with course faculty to develop and use open educational resources (OER) and open pedagogy to integrate information literacy (IL) into the curriculum. OER and open pedagogy can sustainably replace or compliment one-shot library sessions. As this case study indicates, creating an OER allowed a team of librarians and a professor to effectively scaffold the “Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education” (Framework) throughout a required large-enrollment undergraduate journalism course. Including openly licensed student tutorials in the OER created a more inclusive space for students to learn and become peer-educators. This case study outlines a process for using OER and an open pedagogy assignment to teach IL, and offers tips for how library workers can incorporate open educational practices (OEP) into their instructional sessions and collaborations.
