Expert consultation

Page history last edited by Emma Coonan 10 years, 8 months ago

Experts' suggestions for elements to be included in the curriculum:

Data - in the sense of learning to use datasets as resources

Ethical aspects of information and of being online - don't  just look for information that supports your own world view

Build in different levels of support/training appropriate to student need (c/f scaffolding)

Synergy with learning outcomes already in university course curriculum, in order to get IL curriculum embedded

 

 

Group questions:

 

1) Briefly outline your information literacy teaching now

 - is it underpinned by a specific model (e.g. SCONUL 7 pillars)

 

2) How has your information literacy teaching changed in last 3-5 years?

 

3) To what extent do you think undergraduate's information needs have changed in the last 3-5 years?

- What areas do you think undergraduate students need help with now?

- Is there a gap in skills or expectations between the culture of secondary school and the learning culture of higher education?

 

4) What changes in your teaching do you anticipate you will need to make in the future to continue to meet the changing needs and behaviour of students?

 

5) Who else do you think we should talk to when planning this curriculum?

- what other factors do we need  to take into account?

 

Other questions - possibly for later groups

6) What format do you think an information curriculum of the future should take?

 

7) How much work do you do with teachers and school librarians to plan for the curriculum in the future?

 

Questions to ask in the email consultation exercise:

 

Include: 

- short blurb about our project with link to Arcadia website and reference to John Naughton

- a personal note about why we are contacting this person

- a request to follow up and discuss in more detail if appropriate

 

1) We are working on developing an information literacy curriculum for undergraduate students that anticipates and meets the needs of those entering university in the next 5 years - what factors do you think will be important in planning this curriculum?

 

2) What are the key ways you think libraries and librarians can support student learning over the next 3-5 years?

 

3) Thinking about young people's / undergraduate student's information needs over the next 3-5 years, what areas do you think undergraduate students need help with?

- What skills can we assume young people will have?

- Are there any gaps in skills or expectations between the culture of secondary school and the learning culture of higher education?

 

4) What issues do you think we should consider when planning this curriculum?

 

5) Who else do you think we should talk to when planning this curriculum?
