Reflective Information Seeking: Unpacking Meta-Research Skills Through Digital Storytelling
- 909 Downloads
Librarians are tasked with helping students navigate content and discourse across disciplines as well as within their particular major. At times this requires a non-discipline-based form of teaching information seeking, gathering, and sharing that is often called information literacy. Digital storytelling provides a process for uncovering many of these unspoken, unobserved, and yet critical skills for developing the meta-skills needed in our complex information environment. More importantly, it can do so in the most authentic of ways, by incorporating personal reflection and metacognition into the information creation process itself. Academic libraries sit between disciplines and, in a way, have served as untapped grounds for the scholarship of integration.
