A blog about Information Literacy and related issues.
I've been writing an Info Lit blog since 2006, mainly just posting about activities I'm involved with and useful snippets of info I come across. I hope you find it of interest, if so, I'd love to hear from you!
Only a week before the LILAC conference, which is being held in London this year. As usual, the programme looks really interesting and I'm looking forward to coming away with lots of new ideas, as well as networking and catching up with old friends. My colleague, Lucy Keating is giving a paper on her use of web 2.0 with researchers- she's been using social software in a variety of ways - and Ruth Stubbings and I will be launching the new SCONUL Seven Pillars model. We've spent some time developing a core model and research lens and I'm keen to see how folks respond to them. They will be available on the SCONUL website from next week and we'll have printed copies available at the conference. I'm also participating in a symposium organised by Geoff Walton and Drew Whitworth in which they will be challenging the use of IL models in learning. It promises to have some fascinating debate! Sheila Corrall and Stephane Goldstein are running a session baseed around the Researcher Development Framework and how IL maps into that, using our SCONUL research lens as an example.
