As information becomes more abundant and accessible, today’s workers will find it critical to develop the soft skills of information literacy. Prior to graduation, students need regular practice evaluating the credibility of common business information sources. To support these goals, we propose and describe a teaching methodology that borrows from the field of librarianship and uses concepts, mindsets, and practices from the study of information literacy. In addition to providing an information literacy-based framework for use when developing course assignments, we offer an extended example that makes use of this approach.
