Teaching not Telling: Information Literacy and Summon Day | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Information literacy is a common discussion topic for academics, in particular within the library context.  This is covered at many events across the sector, but none more focused than the Information Literacy and Summon Day, which takes place each year in the UK.

Nevermore Sithole's insight:

Resource Curation is vital for learning, teaching and research from high school to university level. Resource curation is necessary with the huge amounts of information currently and freely available online.

 

As such Information Literate students would be able to distinguish between static, syndicated and dynamic resources and this help them in identifying, locating/retrieving, evaluating information sources and ethically using information for academic purposes.

"Helping university students to ‘read’ scholarly journal articles" by Yuka Fujimoto, Pauline Hagel et al.

Academics often treat students’ discipline-specific literacy as unproblematic. In doing so they may underestimate the difficulties for university students as they move between subjects of study that may involve different disciplines, language genres and academic practices. This paper describes an initiative aimed at supporting students in reading academic articles in preparation for completing an essay for an assessment task. This initiative involved a structured and collaborative two-week tutorial exercise that provided students with practice in using a framework to extract the main ideas from academic readings. Students were surveyed after this exercise, and their reflections of its value are described in this paper. The findings of this study will inform further stages of the project which aim to develop and investigate practical ways to develop student’s academic literacy across several business disciplines.
