Description

In the design and merchandising disciplines information comes in many forms, from visual and perceptual to textual and numeric, and is studied using many different quantitative and qualitative methods. How do we use information literacy to help us understand how we teach and assess our discipline? In a multi-year process, our three departmental areas, in conjunction with both librarians and assessment specialists, developed information literacy goals, tiered learning outcomes, and assignments for both design and merchandising programs.
