Actively Connecting Web 2.0 with ACRL Learning Outcomes


I just finished reading a great article entitled “Participation and Pedagogy: Connecting the Social Web to ACRL Learning Outcomes,” in the January 2011 issue of The Journal of Academic Librarianship, by Greg Bobish, an information literacy librarian at University at Albany, Albany, NY. 

His entire effort was to demonstrate constructivist pedagogy with active learning examples showing ways teachers/librarians might use the Social Web (Web 2.0) technologies to meet each learning objective in the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education. Check out the article

My one criticism is that I would love to see this article recreated as a wiki that others could add to. It would make great sense to have such a site available to librarians to enable the sharing of Web 2.0 active learning ideas that we might use in our information literacy sessions of all kinds from one-shots to whole courses.

Have you thought about starting such a wiki or at least working on a collaborative book expanding on this, Greg?
