Proposal: Badges for Information Literacy

On November 18, 2011. I submitted a group proposal for the DML4 Competition: Badges for Lifelong Learning, Stage one. The proposal, co-authored with CEDIBI Librarians Jaquelina Alvarez, Wanda Colón de Hau, and Arelys Fernández, and graphic designer Junibeth Arcelay, seeks to use a system of badges to encourage UPRM students to improve their information literacy. If implemented, this system has the potential to improve the instruction of this important set of skills by providing greater breadth of coverage and assessment.
