The Survey of Best Practices in Developing Online Information Literacy Tutorial Jul-25-2013 | PrimaryResearch.com

Primary Research Group has published The Survey of Best Practices in Developing Online Information Literacy Tutorials, ISBN 978-1-57440-247-6.

The study looks closely at how academic libraries are developing and deploying online information literacy tutorials exploring issues such as spending, budgets, staffing, range and qualifications of staff used for tutorial development, software use, time frame for tutorial development, conceptions of what constitutes a quality tutorial, assessment of library efforts, marketing to students and faculty, cooperation with other institutions, frequency of tutorial revision, measurement of student outcomes, and other issues in the development and use of online information literacy tutorials.

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.”

What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education.

As a first step in an exploration of what these pedagogical changes are and their implications for students, faculty, staff, and institutions, we begin here by:

A very interesting (albeit long and detailed) discussion about the changes driving education and information management in schools and beyond.

 

There are some very good insights that some may find disturbing. One in particular where the teacher is no longer the expert, but a facilitator for students to guide them in their learning and  information gathering/management. When everyone can look up almost anything on Google and get answers, sometimes more accurate than the instructor has provided, a change was inevitable.

#Libraries lead the way providing tools for visually impaired students: University of Zimbabwe #AFRICA via @EIFLnet http://t.co/JzrsEN23...

 

"The librarians at the University of Zimbabwe (UZ) wanted to better serve the students with visual impairments at their university. In collaboration with the EIFL-FOSS programme, they formed a partnership with UZ’s Disability Resource Centre (DRC) to implement real solutions resulting in increased access to online resources for the UZ’s students with disabilities. Their success was recognized by the Zimbabwe Ministry of Public Affairs, and the project has been nominated for a UN award."

Zimbabwe is improving it's educational resources for the visually impared. They are installing magnifying programs as well as programs that read text aloud into library computers and individual's laptops in order to allow those with poor eyesight access to online resources. They have also been extending these programs beyond libraries in order to reach more people. This will help their economy in the long  run by giving more people access to information and an education.
