Libraries and Instructional Technology Learning Outcomes for CSB/SJU Students

The CSB and SJU Libraries and Instructional Technology share these knowledge practices, which outline some of the ways learners can demonstrate facility with information and digital literacies. These knowledge practices are based on the Center for Media Literacy’s Key Concepts of Media Literacy and ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and are organized using the Framework’s six threshold concepts.
