Abstract

Using backward design coupled with a focus on intentional learning, a series of platformindependent podcasts were created to address the need to increase student information literacy competency. The design team used a collaborative process where all members of the team worked in an iterative fashion from the specification of student learning outcomes to the creation of the final assessments. As a case study, this project brought to light the importance of clearly specifying student learning outcomes, creating meaningful assessments, employing strong project management, and efficiently utilizing the composition and dynamics of the design team.
