We have covered a lot of ground since the beginning of the course, and you have learned a great deal about the types of information available, how to discern its credibility, and how to present it to others in a way that continues the academic discussion.
Look back to the Unit 1 discussion and review how you responded to the part of the prompt that asked: “Explain what the phrase ‘information literacy’ means to you. What role does information literacy play in your academic life, your workplace, and your social circles?”
- 1. Have your ideas changed since Unit 1?
- 2. In your response, reflect on how this course has affected your viewpoint on information both for future academic courses and for your professional/personal life.
- 3. Do you feel more ‘information literate?’ How will this impact the way you address knowledge questions in the future?
