Talking about the ACRL draft framework

A number of U of T librarians gathered over a series of three meetings recently to engage in a lively discussion of the ACRL’s draft framework for Higher Education IL. The ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education Task Force (#Isn’tThereSomeFancyAcronymForThis) invited comments on the first part of their draft framework, and the discussions, held at Robarts, OSIE and the ILU’s March monthly meeting and facilitated by Mindy Thuna, provided librarians with a chance to gather to consider the framework and its implications for our teaching, laying the groundwork for feedback to the ACRL.  The sessions, which included wide-ranging discussions and animated active learning exercises, also proved to be a very useful prism for reflecting on teaching practices and pedagogy.
