Students as ‘informed’ learners: enhancing student engagement with literature searching, University Of Surrey, Tuesday, 26. March 2019

Based in the concept of information literacy and related research on informed learning (Australia) and the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education using threshold concepts (USA), this session will examine how consideration of literature searching requirements for assignments can enhance student learning and engagement helping them to develop a subject knowledge base. The session will highlight thinking in relation to information use by reviewing current frameworks and approaches to see how these can be used to develop informed information seeking behaviours applicable not only in the context of subject but for wider application such as workplace settings. The session will involve a creative learning element as a means of highlighting the processes students undertake when information seeking and the potential challenges encountered.
Room location will be sent to participants before the event.
