  7. 7. Information literacy is a continuum of skills, behaviours, approaches and values that is so deeply entwined with the uses of information as to be a fundamental element of learning, scholarship and research. It is the defining characteristic of the discerning scholar, the informed and judicious citizen, and the autonomous learner. Secker and Coonan, ANCIL definition of information literacy, 2011

  12. 12. Embedding vs integrating? “The immediate connotation of the term ‘embedding’ is placement and addition. While present in the [curriculum] it is neither integral nor integrated. It is there as an addon and can possibly be done without.” (Victor Lim Fei, 2012)
  13. 13. Challenging perceptions … “… if the teachers, whether they’re school or university teachers, don’t have the same view of IL that we do, it’s always going to be [about] the skills. And the skills are fine but anybody can teach the skills; it’s teaching the changing attitude and the different approach that I think has to come from the teachers.” (ANCIL Expert Consultation Report, 2011)
  14. 14. Research ∗ LSE Survey examined staff attitudes towards IL ∗ Also explored perceptions of librarians as teachers ∗ Evidence of Bury’s (2011) ‘disconnect’ ∗ Much IL optional, remedial – student self select ∗ Staff questioned relevance ∗ Need more evidence to show the value and impact of IL Image: ‘student_ipad_school - 002’ by Flickingerbrad, CC BY 2.0
