Information Literacy & Library Research: Module 6. Reflecting

Information literacy is the ability to know when information is needed and to be able to identify, locate and evaluate, and then legally and responsibly use and share that information.

Reflecting on the Research Process

Reflecting on the research process helps you transfer information literacy understandings and skills to other contexts. This involves describing the various stages of the research and synthesis process, reflecting critically on your own experience, and articulating specific ways you might use information literacy in academic, professional, or personal situations outside this course.

This module will help you reflect on what you've learned about information literacy and how it applies to the research process. Now that you have been through the research process, you can apply what you learned to future situations, whether school assignments or in your personal or professional life.

By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  1. Describe the various stages of the research process.
  2. Reflect critically on your own experience of participating in the research process.
  3. Articulate how you will transfer the information literacy skills and concepts learned in this course to other contexts, whether academic, professional, or personal.

For INFO 1010: To show what you have learned, you will complete the Module 6 Quiz and the INFO 1010 Final Exam.
