Conference Session 191

Education for Information Literacy Practice: Contemporary Approaches for Developing Professionals

Information Literacy with Education and Training

20 августа 2014 13:45 - 15:45 | Room: Forum 1

What skills does the new LIS graduate need to become an information literacy practitioner?  To what extent do employer expectations align with the opportunities in teaching and learning education?  Are there significant differences between the foundation skills needed in the different areas of practice: public libraries, academic libraries, special libraries and school libraries?  Are there skills better developed on-the-job? What about connecting theory and practice? This highly interactive session has been designed to stimulate debate and discussion between educators and employers about curriculum models and desired student learning outcomes. Please bring examples of how you are contributing to education for information literacy practice - course syllabi, workshop outlines, mentoring programs, etc.!

NOTE: This program will use a "world café" format in a banquet style set-up, so there will not be individual speakers giving papers.
