INFORMATION LITERACY IN HIGHER EDUCATION
27 November 2007, London
This one-day course offers librarians in higher education the opportunity to stand back and consider where they are now with information literacy and to discuss options for enhancing their practice, including the most effective ways of using virtual learning environments.
Numerous questions confront anyone wanting to take information literacy forward in their institution:
* Do we need new models of information literacy that fully include use of the technology?
* What particular information literacy challenges are posed by blended learning?
* What are the most effective ways to develop information literacy within the current HE context?
* How can we take full advantage of the technology to 'teach' information literacy in innovative ways- moving beyond instructions and guidelines or the heavily structured electronic worksheet?
The day will provide librarians in Higher Education with the chance to reflect on the questions above, supported by their peers, the course tutor, and examples from research and development work in Higher Education. Participants will be able to discuss particular issues emerging from the experiences in their own institutions and will be encouraged to share effective strategies and materials.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Librarians in Higher Education who would like opportunity to take stock of their current approaches to developing information literacy, discuss issues and share ideas with their peers, and consider how to move forward within the developing context of Higher Education.
