Teaching Information Literacy at UCBA

Faculty guide for information literacy content and resources for any UCBA course.

Video Playlist in Kaltura

The four videos guide students through the research process by introducing foundational concepts and strategies. They support student research and give course instructors optimum flexibility to incorporate information literacy into a course. Note: some videos (noted with *) include pause time with questions for students to reflect and respond.

  • Identifying Keywords* in a research question or topic (3:06)
  • Summon Basics to set up a search for sources using the UC Libraries search tool (1:46)
  • Information Timeline to learn about the differences between source types (3:28)
  • Evaluating Sources* to determine the credibility of information sources (3:16)

Add to Canvas Course

In addition to the link on this page, there are several ways the playlist can be added to Canvas. Contact your library faculty liaison and they can share any of the following:

  • Embed code for copy/paste
  • Canvas page containing embedded playlist

Suggested Asynchronous Uses for Courses

Videos help engage students in the research process and provide opportunities to view at their own pace and review as needed. This video playlist can be incorporated into any UCBA course.

  • Combine with activities and worksheets 
  • Use as stand alone to introduce and/or review research concepts
