Whisken, A (2016) Action Research and Informed Learning | Informed Learning Praxis | Scoop.it

Whisken, A (2016) Action Research and Informed Learning for Transformative Professional Development About Information Literacy, Chapter Nine in Media and Information Literacy in Higher Education: Educating the Educators, Chandos Information Professional Series, edited by Siri Ingraldsen and Dianne Oberg, Sydney, Chandos. 


'Media and Information Literacy is written for librarians and educators working in universities and university colleges, providing them with the information they need to teach media and information literacy to students at levels ranging from bachelor to doctoral studies. In order to do so, they need to be familiar with students’ strengths and weaknesses regarding MIL. This book investigates what university and college students need to know about searching for, and evaluating, information, and how teaching and learning can be planned and carried out to improve MIL skills. The discussions focus on the use of process-based inquiry approaches for developing media and information literacy competence, involving students in active learning and open-ended investigations and emphasizing their personal learning process. It embraces face-to-face teaching, and newer forms of online education.Examines the intersecting roles of academic librarians, teacher educators, and library educators in preparing library students and teacher education students to use the library Brings new perspectives from both teacher educator and library educator, and draws connections between higher and secondary education (K12)Draws on a number of competences, skills, knowledge, experiences, and reflections from a variety of perspectives, and focuses on libraries as efficient tools in all kinds of education and learning activitiesWritten by an international group of authors with firsthand experience of teaching MILLooks at how libraries can contribute to the promotion of civic literacy within higher education institutions and in society more widely

TOWARDS SELF-REFLECTION IN LIBRARIANSHIP: WHAT IS PRAXIS?

TOWARDS SELF-REFLECTION IN LIBRARIANSHIP: WHAT IS PRAXIS? | Informed Learning Praxis | Scoop.it
The article focuses on self-reflection and the principle of praxis in librarianship. John M. Budd defines praxis for librarianship in progressive terms as action that carries social and ethical implications and is not reduced to technical performance of tasks. Budd further agrees with Richard Bernstein's critique that the meaning of praxis has been watered down, in part, due to an overenthusiastic affinity for technical matters and deference to technical expertise. The goal of social transformation inherent to the praxis statement defines much of library theory and practice.

Research 2.0 and the Future of Information Literacy

Research 2.0 and the Future of Information Literacy | Informed Learning Praxis | Scoop.it

Koltay, T Spiranec, S and Karvalics, L (2016) Research 2.0 and the Future of Information Literacy, Chandos Advances in Information Series, Sydney, Chandos Publishing

"  Research 2.0 and the Future of Information Literacy examines possible congruencies between information literacy and Research 2.0, because the work of today’s researcher mobilizes a number of literacies. From among the various types of relevant literacies, at least three types of literacies can be mentioned in this relation: information literacy, scientific literacy and academic literacy. This book addresses these literacies in the light of the changing research landscape. Broad contexts of the researcher’s abilities, as adaptive and innovative thinking, problem solving skills, self-management and design mindset are also examined. Computational thinking and the computational paradigm in a number of fields of research are taken into consideration, as well. Researchers differ to non-researchers when populating social media, which means that these two different groups require different literacies. The relationship between information literacy and information is approached in a new way. Among the multitude of issues, we introduce a new interface between information literacy and Research 2.0. It encompasses the issues of research data management and data literacy, which represent also a challenge both for the academic library and for the communities of researchers. Similarly, the questions of new metrics of scientific output are addressed in the book.Summarizes the most important and up-to date approaches towards Research 2.0, including researchers’ skills and abilities, the data-intensive paradigm of scientific research, open science, not forgetting about factors that inhibit a wider uptake of Research 2.0Discusses the nature of information literacy in the light of its definitions, declarations and related frameworks and by outlining the new literacies context, reading and writing, the cultural context, and the turns of library and information scienceNumerous literacies, other than information literacy, its relationship to information overload and personal information management are also subject of the bookTheoretical and practical perspectives are given to enable the understanding of the transformations of information literacy and its relationship to Research 2.0

Information Experience

Information Experience | Informed Learning Praxis | Scoop.it
""The German word for experience - Erlebnis - the experience of the life, to live through something - underpins this book: making visible scholarly opportunities for richer and deeper contextualizations and examinations of the lived-world experiences of people in everyday contexts as they be, do and become." (Ross Todd, Preface). Information experience is a burgeoning area of research and still unfolding as an explicit research and practice theme. This book is therefore very timely as it distils the reflections of researchers and practitioners from various disciplines, with interests ranging across information, knowledge, user experience, design and education. They cast a fresh analytical eye on information experience, whilst approaching the idea from diverse perspectives. Information Experience brings together current thinking about the idea of information experience to help form discourse around it and establish a conceptual foundation for taking the idea forward. It therefore "provides a number of theoretical lenses for examining people's information worlds in more holistic and dynamic ways." (Todd, Preface)."
