Developing Digital Literacies for a Digital World: presentations | Information Literacy Weblog | Digital media and information literacy | Scoop.it
There are three presentations from the ALISS (Association of Librarians and Information Professionals in the Social Sciences) AGM held earlier this month. The theme was: Developing Digital Literacies for a Digital World and teh presentations are: - Reflecting on Digital Scholarship competencies: Charles Inskip. This presents findings from the RILADS project, which asked heads of library services of UK universities how competent they thought staff were in various literacies (information literacy, media literacy, digital literacy etc.) though with an emphasis on "digital capabilities". - Start with the Staff: Sally Patalong. This is a report on two staff development projects aimed at improving digital skills. - Information literacy for researchers at SOAS: Beth Clark and Victoria Bird. They present preparing, delivering and promoting digital literacy training for Graduate Teaching Assistants. The actual slides do not have much information on them - if you scroll down the page, though, you will see some extra notes.

Faculty and student perceptions and behaviours related to information literacy: a pilot study using triangulation | Ganley | Journal of Information Literacy

Faculty and student perceptions and behaviours related to information literacy: a pilot study using triangulation... This pilot study was developed to determine if the University’s students were proficient in information literacy (IL) based on the requisite skills defined by ALA (2000), to define faculty and student perceptions and behaviours related to IL and to test an evaluation rubric using empirical inquiry and triangulated methods. Findings suggested that not all students (n=164) had satisfactory IL skills even at the senior student level. While 4th year college students (seniors n=91) fared better on an IL survey when compared to 1st year college students (freshmen n=53), analysis of the senior students’ theses led researchers to believe that students were most likely not skilled in this area, and had an inflated opinion of their own IL abilities. Overall, students felt they were less IL challenged compared to the faculty’s (n=55) observation of the IL challenges experienced by the students.
