Making Information Literacy Fun - Murder at Grim Marsh House

Making Information Literacy Fun -  Murder at Grim Marsh House | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

"We all want to make our information literacy sessions with groups memorable. At the CILIPS Autumn Gathering Chris Morrison, the School Librarian at Linlithgow Academy shared his programmes which introduce S1s and S2s to the skills needed for using the library and information sources. These are not ordinary library sessions though - the pupils are challenged to solve murder mysteries and discover the whereabouts of lost historical artefacts such as the Blue Diamond, which went missing in the French Revolution, or Joan of Arc's standard."

Why teach information literacy in an academic library? | CILIP | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it
"Learning in most academic institutions relies on the provision of library resources to both support and supplement what is being taught and researched. With the rapidly changing information landscape and the myriad ways in which users can search for information, the challenge of locating, accessing and searching for relevant and appropriate information resources for academic research is ever present..."

InformAll webinar | Radical Information Literacy, by Andrew Whitworth

Tuesday 17th February 2015: 16:30 – 18:00 (GMT)

 

Radical Information Literacy, by Andrew Whitworth, was published by Chandos in 2014. The book argues that the development of both the theory and practice of information literacy has been damaged by its institutionalisation in academic libraries, resulting in a neglect of more critical and relational approaches that seek to promote a redistribution of authority over information practice, rather than confirm existing authorities. A recent (Dec 2014) review in the Journal of Information Literacy called it an “important and challenging” book.

“A Bit of a Tall Order” | Library Babel Fish | InsideHigherEd.com

“A Bit of a Tall Order”  | Library Babel Fish | InsideHigherEd.com | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

I’m attending the LILAC conference for the first time, an annual gathering in the UK focused on information literacy that attracts librarians from around the world, and the first day has been terrific. I’m learning a new language – people who attend a conference on this side of the pond are “delegates” and what we in the states call orientation for new students appears to be called “induction.” Then, given it’s happening in Newcastle, I’m learning a few words of Geordie. It’s dead canny.

 

A highlight of day one was hearing Ray Land of the Centre for Academic Practice at Durham University. He’s one of the principle scholars behind the notion of threshold concepts, which influenced a library research project that has, in turn, hugely influenced the new Framework for Information Literacy.

A New Report From Project Information Literacy

A New Report From Project Information Literacy | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Click here to edit the content

"Last week I was reflecting on whether our information literacy efforts truly support lifelong learning and whether there are practical ways to help students connect the kind of information analysis they conduct for college assignments with the ways they will use information later.

 

Lucky me! A report from an ongoing Project Information Literacy study about lifelong learning has just been released."

Anthony Beal's insight:

One aspect of the report highlights:

 

"the young graduates surveyed placed a high value on books for lifelong learning in their personal lives (87%), and to a lesser extent in the workplace (64%). Over half of the sample (65%) had read more than three books in the 12 months, according to the responses. This finding suggests that the book lives on."
