EDU 100/300 - Contexts of Education
EDU 100 / 300: Contexts of Education is a required course in the undergraduate Education program at the University of Alberta; EDU 300 is for after degree students. Students submit a research paper (library assignment) related to a current educational issue in Canada. For this assignment they need to locate at least four different sources: two sources must be articles from peer-reviewed academic journals, the remaining two sources may include additional peer-reviewed articles, books, book chapters, professional education-related journals (trade journals), newspaper articles, videos, etc. The original lesson plan was designed by Debbie Feisst and was taught with some modifications by various librarians at the H.T. Coutts Education Library. Although emphasis is on the following two frames: Authority is Constructed and Contextual, Information Creation as a process, a mapping document has been included to illustrate where other frames are addressed throughout the lesson.

In 2016, the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) adopted the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education to meet the current informational climate. This new Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education focuses on six threshold concepts, ideals to serve as "passageways or portals to enlarged understanding or ways of thinking and practicing within that discipline."
"This new approach to teaching and learning can show that collaboration - within and across disciplines- can lead to uncovering enduring understandings that lead to deep learning and the emergence of students as creators of information, not just consumers. To complete this learning circle, faculty can look to librarians as partners in the academic mission." from Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education Executive Summary.
