Building an Information Literacy Micro-Course in Six Weeks Online Course

Join ACRL from June 3-July 12, 2024, for the Online Learning course “Building an Information Literacy Micro-Course in Six Weeks.”

This beginner/intermediate level asynchronous course will provide participants with a step-by-step guide on the process of planning and implementing their own information literacy micro-course in only six weeks. At the end of the course, participants will have identified their information literacy learning outcome for their micro-course, scripted, storyboarded, filmed and edited their micro-course video, created an accompanying learning activity, and identified their means of sharing their course with stakeholders. The weeks will be broken down as follows: 

Week 1) Introduction to Micro-Learning: Inventory and Needs Assessment
Week 2) Lesson Planning
Week 3) Pre-Production
Week 4) Production
Week 5) Course Staging
Week 6) Countdown to Launch

Each week will include a video, readings, and mini assessment to model micro-learning, and one optional discussion so participants can share their progress on their micro-course and provide tips, inspiration, and motivation. Filming, editing, and instruction experience are not required, though minimal knowledge or exposure could prove beneficial. Supplementary resources and tips will be provided throughout the course to develop these skills as needed. The course is asynchronous, so participants can choose to use the six-week model as a guide, or work through the course at their own pace
