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."

Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program

Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program | Information Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Abstract: This article reports on a pilot study to examine undergraduate students’ help-seeking behavior when undertaking library research in online courses. A novel methodology incorporating elements of ethnographic research resulted in a small, but rich and detailed, collection of qualitative data. The data suggest that the methodology has promise for future, larger studies on students in online learning environments. The article includes a detailed discussion of the methodology’s strengths and weaknesses, and offers recommendations for modifications that will improve the research design.
