Collaborative Approaches to Information Literacy

Collaborative Approaches to Information Literacy | FE and HE IL Champions | Scoop.it
Collaborative Approaches to Information Literacy
This event aims to give participants an opportunity to learn from the good practice of the presenters who have innovated and developed their practice by working collaboratively.
The speakers for the event include staff from different HE and FE institutions who will discuss how they have collaborated with different professionals, both across their institutions, and externally.
As a result of attending this event participants will have a greater understanding of how to develop integrated approaches to information and digital literacy practice. There will be a focus on how collaborative practice can raise the profile of IL beyond the library and enable services to work more efficiently with stronger outcomes. Attendees will learn practical ways to share information and knowledge beyond immediate teams, and how to build relationships to make better use of existing resources and aid skill development.

Library instruction for first-year students

Llandrillo Library's insight:

Plymouth University (US) has developed a first year IL training course to support student skills 

"Plymouth State University attempts to address the needs of budding scholars through a required First Year Seminar (FYS) course, which is designed to develop the research, writing, and critical thinking skills that they are expected to use while pursuing an education. Each FYS course is assigned an instructor, a topic, and a personal librarian who meets with the class once or twice during the semester to cover these skills."

Ofcom | Adults’ Media Use and Attitudes Report 2014

Our Adults' Media Use and Attitudes Report provides detailed evidence on media use, attitudes and understanding among UK adults aged 16+. It covers TV, radio, mobile, games, and the internet, with a particular focus on the latter.Media literacy enables people to have the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to make full use of the opportunities presented both by traditional and by new communications services. Media literacy also helps people to manage content and communications, and protect themselves and their families from the potential risks associated with using these services.
Llandrillo Library's insight:

 

Key themes from this year's report include:

There has been growth in take-up and use by older people, across a range of devicesThere has been growth in a range of online activities, particularly across communication and entertainment activitiesUser-generated content is an information source for users, although online users are more likely to receive than to contribute contentPrivacy and security attitudes and behaviour continue to vary considerably by age groupAmong those with app-enabled devices, apps are more popular than browsers for some online activitiesMore UK adults, especially older adults, are now going online, using a range of devices - how is this reflected in your teaching practice and resource support????

Information literacy is for life, not just for a good degree | CILIP

Information literacy is for life, not just for a good degree | CILIP | FE and HE IL Champions | Scoop.it
Llandrillo Library's insight:

"More recently this focus has widened to examine transition from school and Further Education (FE) into University, recognizing universities’ increasingly high expectations of new undergraduates information literacies. This widening of focus is also starting to bring workplace information literacy under the spotlight. It’s an exciting time for this area of research, as theory and practice can be seen to start to reflect the Alexandria Proclamation assertion that “Information Literacy lies at the core of lifelong learning. It empowers people in all walks of life to seek, evaluate, use and create information effectively to achieve their personal, social, occupational and educational goals.” - See more at: http://www.cilip.org.uk/cilip/news/information-literacy-life-not-just-good-degree#sthash.rI2UoTAV.dpuf

John Dalziel's curator insight, June 4, 10:13 AM

The Can We Image site was created to make it easier for users to find images on the web.
The site searches and displays results from Wikimedia Commons, an enormous repository of images and other digital resources.
Searching Wikimedia Commons instead of another site like Google Images provides a benefit for both learners and practitioners who want to use the digital resources legally.
All resources displayed in the search results on this site link directly to the resource's usage rights page. That page will help users decide whether they can use the resource elsewhere.
To be fair searching for images here instead of going directly to Wikimedia Commons just provides a simpler interface.
Search results appear in an easy-to-digest format that we've all grown accustomed to.
It combines the great resources of Wikimedia Commons with the interface of Google Images.

The Relationship between International Student Library Use and Information Needs | Yi | Library and Information Research

The Relationship between International Student Library Use and Information Needs
Llandrillo Library's insight:

This study examines how international student library use relates to their information needs and the factors influencing their information needs.

"Demographic variables such as age, human capital data such as education level, databases, interlibrary loan, e-journals, library reserve, ready reference, online subject guides, browsing the Internet, email and print materials are significant predictors of international student information needs, but this study indicates that gender, library catalog, and remote access to the library offerings make no difference."
