Information Competencies for Students in Design Disciplines: Revisions & Critical Updates

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What does it mean to be information competent in the fields art, architecture, or design? What are the learning outcomes a student in these disciplines should have upon graduation? In 2007, ARLIS/NA published the Information Competencies for Students in Design Disciplines which provided a framework for information literacy in our field. Considering the growth of new design fields and advances in information literacy instruction, a Research and Information Services Section team has been revising and re-envisioning the 2007 report.
In this working session, we will present our early draft which incorporates new guiding documents from our field including the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and the ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, plus discipline specific frameworks and guidelines. We are looking for active participation in shaping this document, including feedback and further contribution from ARLIS/NA members who would like to volunteer to develop additional art and design competencies in 2018.
