Finding and Managing Information: Generic Information Literacy and Management Skills for Postgraduate Researchers

Finding and Managing Information: Generic Information Literacy and Management Skills for Postgraduate Researchers | Information Fluency and or Literacy | Scoop.it

A gap in the linking of information literacy skills and bibliographic software usage was identified in the postgraduate researcher cohort. While the provision was available, many researchers were not integrating the finding of research information and the management of that information using bibliographic software tools. This article describes the linking of these two areas in two courses presented to postgraduate researchers and analyses the feedback from those who attended. Overall, an overwhelmingly positive response was found. Most positively received was the software training, perceived as a ‘new’ skill, while information literacy skills were less well received, due mainly to the perception of those skills as already acquired.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Organic Food: A Lesson In Information Literacy

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: Organic Food: A Lesson In Information Literacy | Information Fluency and or Literacy | Scoop.it

"As we head into the throws of the summer and the coming onslaught of fresh produce from local growers hitting the markets, we thought it might be helpful to provide a little information literacy into the world of organic foods. We’ve long taught our students to read the nutrition labels...but now that organic food has become mainstream in supermarket chains, it makes sense to educate our students about organics as well."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 1, 2013 5:03 PM

This post provides a wide variety of resources that will help you teach students about the difference between organic and non-organic foods. It is pretty amazing to see that 78% of families purchase organic foods (data is from the Organic Trade Association).
Along with the infographic shown above you will find a video that discusses what organic foods are and notes that just because something is organic does not mean it is healthy, a link to an infographic that shows what the word organic really means, a link to an infographic that teaches you how to read those small lables that show up on produce (called PLUs), and links to several other sources.

This post discusses the need to for students to become "information literate" in terms of organic foods, yet our students need to become "information literate" in many areas. The wide variety of materials provides sufficient information in this area, and may help students learn that a wide variety of information is necessary to become literate in other areas.
