ExposingDigital Literacy Skills within Hip-Hop Music Sampling: Connect-the-Learning!

In this (prerecorded) episode, host Forrest Foster will be discussing his research on the scheduled topic. Link to published article on topic -  

In our field of librarianship, we have a tendency to focus on information literacy more often, in the higher ed classroom and only exemplifying these skills by demonstrations of research papers and databases.  Rarely do we bring real life application to the forefront by using other methodologies and exercises. Being able to expose information (digital) literacy skills that are prevalent in occupations, especially, in occupations that many would never envision information or digital skills to be embedded in would heighten our awareness about information literacy and it would engage students as well.We are no longer just learning and teaching about hip-hop for leisure & historical purposes. We are now demonstrating how certain aspects of hip-hop can be tied to digital and information literacy skills- (learning outcomes) that can be measured and assessed. Everything we do must be tied to a measurable outcome to have a major role or relevancy to the curriculum and university.
