The Marquette Raynor Memorial Libraries is part of the The New Literacies Alliance (NLA), a dynamic consortial curricular project led by librarians from K-State and KUMC. The purpose of the consortium is to address the new literacies required for academic success and lifelong learning in a cutting edge online learning platform that allows students to master skills at their own pace.
NLA has developed a series of short lessons that cover rudimentary concepts of information literacy. These lessons can be easily added as links in your D2L course site.
Although the lessons can be given as stand alone activities, they should be paired with an assignment or research/creative project for best results.
If you would like to work with NLA to create additional literacy lessons please contact Marquette's NLA liaison.
You may also find the Marquette created interactive information literacy tutorials useful too.
The lessons can be integrated into D2L via an LTI link. The integration allows you to have student grades from the lesson sent to your D2L gradebook. Complete the following form to get the lesson LTI links and instructions on how to add them to your D2L course.
