Thing 18: Teaching information literacy

The session in week 11 (4th November) has a session from three of the librarians at Sheffield University: Lyn Parker, Vicky Grant, and Maria Mawson. They will each talk about teaching information literacy. There is a section on Information Literacy on the Sheffield University website here:

Note that if this is a major interest for you, then the module Educational Informatics will be very relevant next semester.

There are a huge number of articles and resources about teaching information literacy, for those that are interested in this topic.  A few examples are:

- This site, which has material from a project about a "New Curriculum" for Information Literacy:

- A "toolkit" developed by the London-based Clinical Librarians and Information Skills Trainers

- Cardiff University's Handbook for Information Literacy Teaching

- Wilson, C. et al. (2011) Media and Information Literacy Curriculum for Teachers. Paris: UNESCO.

- A number of the presentations in the 2012 LILAC (information literacy) conference:

- The Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online Database

- One of my own articles: Webber, S., Boon, S. and Johnston, B. (2006) British academics from different disciplines: comparing their conceptions of pedagogy for information literacy. In : Actes des 5èmes Rencontres Formist: Lyon: 2005. Lyon: ENSSIB.
