Information Literacy Education A Process Approach Book Description :

From a traditional role of information gatekeepers, librarians have been challenged to become pedagogues who teach and counsel students in information literacy. The aim of this book is to professionalise the educational role of academic libraries. It helps information professionals design and carry out information literacy education programmes. The book puts forward a process-oriented approach to information literacy user education. Practical ways are outlined in which librarians’ pedagogical involvement in higher education can be enhanced. By applying two general didactic models, the book meets the information professionals’ needs to make theoretically founded and independent choices in her teaching and supervisory practices as well as critically reflecting on them. Examples of best and less good practice are drawn upon to provide scenarios for reflection which can inspire and enrich the information professional’s work. Provides the information professional with a practical framework to get started on a new user education programme for information literacy or to redesign an existing one Puts forward a model of user education which contextualises information search and use within the framework of academic writing Helps the academic library, as a professional community, to build up a common educational platform for information literacy which will enhance its educational role in the higher education landscape

Designing Information Literacy Instruction Book Description :

Designing Information Literacy Instruction: The Teaching Tripod Approach provides a working knowledge of how instructional design (ID) applies to information literacy instruction (ILI). Its "how to do it" approach is directed at instruction librarians in all library settings and deals with both face-to-face and online ID issues. No matter where an instruction librarian works, whom they are teaching, or what delivery mode they will be using, the ID process remains the same: Start with the user and the user's needs. Identify the instructional problem(s). Develop outcomes that address these problem(s). Use outcomes to drive both the learning activities included and the assessments used to measure the attainment of the success of the instructional endeavor. This book will help instruction librarians create instruction for all types of environments and in all modes of delivery. It includes exercises and worksheets to help the reader work through the instructional design process. Based on Kaplowitz’s innovative Teaching Tripod model, it will help instructional librarians clearly define the crucial links between outcomes, activities and assessment.
