Now that I'm no longer tied to a specific research project, I'd like to get back to reading some of those other articles and books that I couldn't give time to before. Anyone interested in joining me? I'm actually interested in user ed even more broadly, for example including the learning development stuff and technical/IT skills that might or might not fall directly into definitions of information literacy.
The plan would be to hold the discussions on Twitter and through blog posts and comments, keeping things as open as possible. I've always wanted to join the Second Life information literacy discussions but have had so much hassle trying to get the programme working properly that I haven't yet been able to, but maybe we could also link in with that if the organisers don't have any objections.
I have some initial suggestions for things I'd like to read, but feel free to suggest more in the comments:
- Badke's Research Strategies (reading at the moment)
- Christine Bruce's Informed Learning (suggested previously by Susie Andretta)
- Revised Seven Pillars of Information Literacy and the lenses that have been developed for it
- A New Curriculum for Information Literacy
Update: Sheila Webber, Helen Blanchett and I are now running a blog-based information literacy journal club, aiming for one discussion each month. Check out http://infolitjournalclub.blogspot.co.uk/
