College of Communication and Information

Credit(s): 3

In today’s 24-7 culture, every choice we make comes with more data about which product/service/area is the ‘best’ on a number of factors. The challenge, then, is sorting through the data to make an informed decision. In this course, you will be presented with several ‘real life’ scenarios and then asked to use data to construct an appropriate written or oral response. Whether as information consumers or as information professionals, sorting through the data and making a decision that can be articulated to people unfamiliar with the issue is a key indicator of information literacy. Given that this course fulfills your Graduation Composition and Communication requirement for Information Studies, you will be asked to write and revise several short pieces and complete one digital presentation.

Approved for Distance Learning.
