INFORMATION LITERACY

All UCORE-designated courses are required to advance Information Literacy, totaling 34 credit hours in UCORE-designated courses that include instruction and/or engagement with Information Literacy. As such, the required first-year experience course [ROOT], other first-year foundational requirements, and the senior capstone experience course [CAPS] are required to advance Information Literacy.

WSU Learning Goal: Graduates will effectively identify, locate, evaluate, use responsibly and share information for the problem at hand. Graduates may demonstrate information literacy by:

  • Determining the extent and type of information needed.
  • Implementing well-designed search strategies.
  • Accessing information effectively and efficiently from multiple sources.
  • Assessing credibility and applicability of information sources.
  • Using information to accomplish a specific purpose.
  • Accessing and using information ethically and legally.
