Putting the IFLA Media & Information Literacy Recommendations into practice in your community, library and country

  1. 1. IFLA, Cape Town, August 2015 Workshop procedure Putting the IFLA Media & Information Literacy Recommendations into practice in your community, library and country
  2. 2. Aims • Share examples of the recommendations having already been implemented – successes that can give us ideas of what we can do in our own countries and communities • Develop new ideas of how we can take action to make the recommendations happen The IFLA IL Committee will share the material after the session Sheila Webber, 2015
  3. 3. Headline actions from the recommendations 1. Commission [encourage and fund] research on the state of Media and Information Literacy and produce reports, so that experts, educators, and practitioners are able to design effective initiatives 2. Support professional development for library, information, archive personnel in the principles and practices of Media and Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning – i.e. ensuring that education and training of these professionals includes being taught about MIL and Lifelong Learning 3. Embed Media and Information Literacy education in all lifelong Learning curricula – Includes Lifelong Learning programmes; adult learning
  4. 4. 4. Recognise Media and Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning as key elements for the development of generic capabilities which must be demonstrated for accreditation of all education and training programs – This means that MIL must be required by accrediting programmes (a national, regional or specialist organisation that accredits degrees or other qualifications) and/or that a learner has to demonstrate that he/she is media and information literate in order to gain a qualification. This can be at any level of education. 5. Include Media and Information Literacy in the core & continuing education of – educators – economic and government policymakers and administrators – advisors to the business, industry and agriculture sectors – health personnel – human services personnel • This includes initial qualifications (core) and continuing professional development (through people’s working lives) And any groups you want to add
  5. 5. 6. Implement Media and Information Literacy programs to increase the employability and entrepreneurial capacities of women and disadvantaged groups, including migrants, the underemployed and the unemployed – Note that these are groups which may have very different profiles and needs, so it may be useful to consider them separately 7. Support thematic meetings which will facilitate the acquisition of Media and Information and Lifelong Learning strategies within specific regions, sectors, and population groups – Concentrate on meetings which are at a high enough level to have an influence on policy
  6. 6. The process for the rest of the session
  7. 7. Question 1 – up to 20 mins • Question 1. What examples have you got of this already happening in your country or region (your own examples or ones you know about)? • Focus on the action heading on your table • Your faciltator will ask you each to think of examples and then share- on Yellow or Blue paper – If you can’t immediately think of one – that’s ok! • Share with other people on your table • Only if you can and want to – share on padlet (now, or afterwards if you remember examples after the session) http://tinyurl.com/pk3mnos
  8. 8. An example for h7 (Thematic meetings) • “Information Literacy in Scotland: challenges and opportunities” Feb 2015 • Organised by the Scottish IL Community of Practice and the Scottish Library and Information Council • Invited speakers e.g. from Young Scot; Health & Social Care Alliance Scotland; Scottish Qualifications Authority • Part of a campaign of lobbying for information literacy (most recently made a presentation to a Minister at the Scottish Parliament)
  9. 9. Using padlet http://tinyurl.com/pk3mnos • Double click on the screen • Fill in the box – Put the heading number first (1 or 2 or 3 etc.) – Then put information about your example
  10. 10. Question 2 – up to 15 minutes • Question 2. What still needs to be done in your country or region (either supporting existing efforts or creating new initiatives) • Everyone think of specific things that need to be done • Write down one idea per GREEN piece of paper • Share with other people on the table • Select ideas to take on to the next stage (in the next stage groups of 2 or 3 will work on ideas created in this step – one “action idea” per group 2 or 3)
  11. 11. Examples • H1 – Find out the actual information needs for good health in a local rural community, so an appropriate information literacy programme can be developed • H2 – Get short courses (f2f or online) on MIL and Lifelong Learning sponsored by the national library association • H5 – Ensure that all health services personnel are taught about information literacy and its value to healthcare in their university education • H6 – Have a programme of courses aimed at women entrepreneurs which improves their information literacy so they can make more informed business decisions
  12. 12. Questions 3 and 4 – privately in groups of 2 or 3 • Step 3 (Question 3: who needs to take action (individuals and organisations) to achieve what you have identified in Q2?) – On orange paper identify who (people/ organisations) needs to do something in order to achieve the action. • Step 4 (Question 4: how can you motivate and influence them (people/organisations mentioned in Q3) to take action?) – On pink paper identify what library and information professionals, national associations and IFLA would need to do to influence and motivate the people in Q3
  13. 13. Example H1 – Find out the actual information needs for good health in a local rural community, so an appropriate information literacy programme can be developed Agencies who fund research How Q4 Who Q3 Agencies who fund rsearch The people you want to survey Local leaders, elders, agencies Agencies supporting health Local government Researchers Presenting evidence of link between IL and health Friend who knows that person Personal appeal to someone influential & sympathetic
  14. 14. Final step! • Each group of 2 or 3 present your “action plan” to the whole table – (action – who needs to take action – how to motivate them) • The table decides which one they want to select for presentation – can be the “most important”, the “easiest to do” – it’s up to you to decide • Decide who is going to come up to the microphone to explain your table’s chosen “action plan” very briefly
  15. 15. For the “how” • Should/could your library association or IFLA help with the “how”? • It might be specific actions (though remember IFLA has few staff), it may be using guidelines or statements produced by a library association or IFLA
  16. 16. After the presentations • Final time for you to think for yourself about question 5 “what can you or your organisation do next (practical steps)?” to achieve any of these actions, or to learn from the examples presented earlier?
