  • 1. Empowering Autonomous Learning through Information Competencies   Information  Literacy  in  the  Adult  Education/   Lifelong  Learning  Sector   Recommendations  to  Policy  Makers   (the  LEONARDO  DA  VINCI  programme  area)     Through   EMPATIC’s   validation   workshops,   a   process   of   consultation   and   the   Final   Conference,   the   following   recommendations   to   policy   makers   in   the   adult   education/Lifelong   learning   sector   have  been  identified:       1. Information   Literacy   and   its   specialized   fields   must   be   promoted   to   society,   decision   makers,  politicians,  communities  and  users.     2. Ministries   of   education   and   lifelong   learning,   departments   at   higher   educational   institutions,  all  relevant  institutions  and  libraries  should  cooperate  with  each  other.     3. National  strategies  should  follow  from  development  of  a  European  scheme  of  IL  standards,   assessment  types  and  learning  outcomes.   4. Lobbying  for  the  integration  of  IL  into  Adult  Education  &  Life  Long  Learning  must  be   undertaken  to  the  EU,  national  politicians,  public  libraries  and  all  relevant  institutions.   5. Departments  of  Library  and  Information  Science,  information  literacy  professionals  and  all   relevant  bodies  should  work  together  to  prepare  educational  content  and  materials  related   to  Information  Literacy.       6. The  learner  must  be  more  active  and  become  a  partner  in  the  process.   7. The  media  is  very  important;  this  can  include  music,  radio,  local  newspapers,  and  popular   activities  such  as  drama  and  local  associations.   8. IL   should   be   integrated   into   all   Lifelong   Learning   activities   that   are   run   by   various   organizations   in   a   practical   way,   this   could   be   through   financial   information,   health   education,  cultural  information,  etc.   9. International   cooperation   concerning   Adult   Education   and   Information   Literacy   should   be   developed.       10. Consequently,  advocating  IL  must  be  undertaken  on  national,  local,  community  and   institutional  levels  simultaneously.   11. Modern  technologies  to  apply  IL  in  Adult  Education  &  Life  Long  Learning  (e.g.  Web2.0,  e-­‐ conferences)  must  be  utilized.   12. Public  Libraries  have  a  very  important  role  to  play  in  the  application  of  IL  in  Adult  Education   &  Life  Long  Learning  and  therefore  have  to  be  helped  in  order  to  succeed  in  it.     The  main  purpose  of  the  EMPATIC  recommendations  is  to  stimulate  action   www.empat-ic.eu Project funded by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Programme
