About

Welcome to 23 Framework Things, an exploration of the Association of College & Research Libraries’ Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.  This academic librarian-focused, self-paced program encourages participants to read, reflect, and respond to prompts and big questions surrounding the implementation of the Framework at their institutions.

Rationale

In response to the call for more support and resources surrounding the Framework, we, the current and former chairs of the Instruction Round Table of the Minnesota Library Association, decided to make 2017 the year we focus on the Framework.  Through this program and the workshop and conference session that preceded it, we are engaging academic librarians in learning more about the Framework and putting it into practice at their institutions.

Participants

ALL are welcome to participate in 23 Framework Things, including those across the United States and internationally.  However, due to funding, larger prizes will only be given to participants working in Minnesota.  Please view the How to Participate page and fill out the Registration Form to participate.

Things

Each “thing” is essentially a prompt to get you to think about one aspect of the Framework.  “Things” will be released in waves. At the beginning of each month from May 2017 to August 2017, a new wave of “things” will be released with “things” from different tracks.

Tracks

The 23 things are split into four tracks that loosely surround a theme, specifically: Pedagogy, Frame Focus, Assessment, and @ Your Institution.

Timeline

Though the 23 Framework Things site will stay active for years (barring catastrophe and whatnot), progress tracking, site management, and prize eligibility will end on October 5, 2017.  Those who complete all 23 things by this date will receive a certificate of completion.

Prizes (UPDATED 6/13/17)

Thank you to our generous funders: the Minnesota Library Association and Minitex! Due to funding stipulation, eligibility for prizes varies.  See below for specifics.  We encourage Minnesota librarians to join and participate in MLA in order to explore additional opportunities for professional development and make connections within the Minnesota library community.
