A practical introduction to digital and information literacy frameworks for apprentices

The CILIP Information Literacy Group is pleased to announce a webinar that will introduce participants to digital and information literacy frameworks and how they can be practically applied in the workplace.  In the webinar we will look at defining what digital and information literacy is and what the differences are between the two.  We will go through different workplace examples and use the Media and Information Literacy Alliance (MILA) framework to illustrate how they are used in practice.

This free webinar will take place online at 12pm on 28 June.
