ABOUT THE CLASS









INTRODUCTION


The Power of Pooled Knowledge

Kristin Fontichiaro



It’s tough work teaching a class called Information Literacy for Teaching and Learning when the implementation of information literacy remains uncertain. That we need librarians and teachers who are savvy navigators of resources and can help others become critical thinkers, synthesizers, and evaluators is not in doubt. Yet the number of schools, colleges, universities, and libraries that have effectively created information literate students, across the board, is limited. What’s a professor to do? Make information literacy implementation and acquisition too simplistic in the classroom, and the enrolled preservice teachers and librarians will enter the field over-confident and underprepared. Call it a movement that hasn’t gained mainstream adoption in the 30+ years since the term was coined, and it deflates enthusiasm for the course’s relevance. Striking an effective balance is a challenge.
