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!
Our first talk to the Finnish information literacy librarians network was entitled "Information Literacy models: learning from the past to inform the future". Our aim was to give a brief overview of some existing models as well as dipping into some teaching and learning theory to stimulate discussion on the use of models in IL. We looked at some of the issues and criticisms of models as well as discussing how they can help in IL. Ruth and I both believe models can be helpful and were keen to explain how we have built on existing theories and pedagogy in developing the revised SCONUL Seven Pillars model. You can find our slides here.
