4.5 Activity: Writing Commons – Information Literacy & Research

How much information do you interact with on a daily basis? How much information do you have access to at your fingertips right now? More than you can imagine! There is no way you will ever be able to learn every bit of information that is out there; that is why information literacy and research are critical skills as a writer and a learner. They overlap in some ways, but Writing Commons addresses them separately. In this week’s activity, you will explore each of them further.

Upon successful completion of this activity, you will be able to:

  • Describe information literacy and research as key elements of writing.

Background Information

This Writing Commons activity is a post on the discussion board. Responses to your classmates are not required but take some time to read through the ideas they have posted and comment as you are inspired to do so. You can extend your own learning in this way.


  1. Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
  2. Read the pages on Information Literacy(new tab) and Research(new tab) in Writing Commons. (The order in which you read them is up to you.)
  3. After you have read the Research page, write how research, as described in Writing Commons, relates to the problem-based learning model in the DBA. (200-250 words)
  4. After you have read the Information Literacy page, go back to the quote from the Alexandria Proclamation and the list of core competencies. Why would these competencies be considered a basic human right? Write a response in 200-250 words.
  5. Post your two responses as your initial post to the discussion board by the end of the workshop.
  6. No responses to classmates are required, but you will extend your learning by reading your classmates’ posts. You are welcome to comment and engage in discussions if they emerge.
