Information Literacy Teaching for New(er) Professionals – book now!

Are you a new professional or new to teaching information literacy? Then the CILIP Information Literacy Group (ILG) are hosting a perfect event for you – Information Literacy Teaching for New(er) Professionals, which will take place at the University of the West of England’s Frenchay campus in Bristol on Monday, March 4th, 2019.

Particularly suited to new professionals or those new to teaching information literacy and associated skills, this day will introduce some key information literacy frameworks and give an overview of key ideas associated with teaching information skills. We will cover information literacy definitions and frameworks, lesson planning, writing learning objectives, and evaluating your teaching, and include examples of practical ideas you could re-use in your own teaching.

The session will be led by ILG committee members Abi Ward, Jane Secker, and Andrew Walsh.
