Call for Chapter Proposals: The Future Scholar: Researching & Teaching the Frameworks for Writing & Information Literacy

By sgodbey on April 15, 2015 10:15 AM | Permalink

Framework documents are playing an increasingly important role in the higher education landscape. Two are of particular importance to those of us invested in rhetorical and information literacy in a digital world.

In the closing lines of its introduction, the forthcoming Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (hereafter ACRL Framework, http://acrl.ala.org/ilstandards/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Framework-for...) from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) asserts it “opens the way” for librarians, faculty, and other stakeholders to redesign assignments, courses, and curricula for today’s students as well as “to create wider conversations about student learning, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and the assessment of learning on local campuses and beyond.” The ACRL Framework includes the ACRL’s new definition of information literacy, six literacy “frames”—covering a wide “spectrum of abilities, practices, and habits of mind”—and a discussion of digital tools.

Can public libraries, school libraries, academic libraries, and special libraries collaborate to promote information literacy and lifelong learning?  Lifelong learning is not confined to childhood or the classroom, but takes place throughout a range of situations in life including the workplace.  How do libraries of all kinds best engage with their communities and make creative partnerships to meet the challenges?

Theme: Embracing relentless change: Information literacy and lifelong learning in a digital age:

For all who are engaged in learning in this information rich society the challenge to achieve information literacy is vital in capitalising on the diverse and often overwhelming range of information choices with which we are continually faced. This is confounded further by the rise of digital and social media tools which doubtless have brought with them some stunning innovations and some colossal challenges. Information Literacy can help us discover, critically evaluate and generate new information to cradle these new diverse digital media
