Information and Society: Moving Beyond Basic Information Literacy to Responsible Digital Citizenship
At a time when the spread of misinformation, “fake news”, propaganda, and misleading sensationalism is prevalent and more powerfully disseminated than ever, it is important that students are able to properly navigate and analyze information and its sources. Together we developed an upper-division information literacy course on information analysis and evaluation. In this session we share the course proposal process, course design, and tips on how to work collaboratively for curricular change.

Nothing Could Be Easier: Creating an OER for Fairy Tales, Intermediate Writing, and Information Literacy
The collaborative endeavor of teaching intermediate writing with the focus of fairy tales and introduction of information literacy has inspired the creation of an Open Educational Resource (OER). While the OER project is still in its infancy, this session will discuss how the individual courses benefit from being taught as co-requisites - encouraging students to transfer skills across disciplines - and how librarians can use collaborative ventures to bridge to other projects like OER.
