AA/OT Map

CLIP is striving to create materials that will help instructors and librarians integrate information literacy student outcomes and course criteria for the Associate of Arts-Oregon Transfer degree into curricula. Tutorials that address the student outcomes and course criteria are mapped below. We will update this page as more materials are developed.

The JBAC mandated AA/OT outcomes and course criteria are articulated in appendix K of the Oregon Community College Handbook and Planning Guide (CCWD).

3. access relevant information effectively and efficiently

4. evaluate information and its sources critically

5. understand many of the economic, legal and social issues surrounding the use of information.
