Save the date - Augustana Information Literacy in Academic Libraries Workshop!

9th Annual Augustana Information Literacy in Academic Libraries Workshop!

When:
Thursday, December 3, 2009 (with optional Wednesday, December 2 social event)

Topic:
New Foundations: Building an inquiry-based information literacy agenda

Presenter:
Dr. Ross Todd
Associate Professor
Rutgers University School of Communication, Information, and Library Studies

This year’s workshop will focus on an inquiry-based approach to information literacy, where the end point of instruction is not the mastery of information-handling skills (locating, accessing, and evaluating information), but rather a constructivist approach that emphasizes the development of deep knowledge and understanding. The workshop will also introduce an instructional design approach based on Carol Kuhlthau's Information Search Process model, which provides a conceptual framework for instruction that fosters students' information-to-knowledge journey.

Where:
Augustana Campus Library (University of Alberta Libraries), Camrose, AB, Canada
