Thoughts from ECIL 2015

  1. 1. Thoughts from ECIL 2015 Sheila Webber Tallinn, October 2015
  2. 2. #ecil2015 European Conference on Information Literacy • The success of the 1st conference showed that this is a conference at the right time, for me it still has that good feeling • Very much like the international nature, but as a European it is nice it is still the “European” conference • (Already too much for organisers to do, but…) possible to have more shared virtually? • I think we should end earlier on the last day! Sheila Webber, 2015
  3. 3. # Literacy # • Constructive discussion about Information Literacy and its meaning (rather than obsession about getting one definition) – Also discussion on other key concepts like “evaluation” or “authority” emerged in different sessions • Start of more deliberate interaction with Media Literacy community – also helps to highlight IL’s contribution and difference • Variety of perspectives on what IL, information and other literacies (digital, health, visual …) mean in theory and practice Sheila Webber, 2015# indicates truncation of any number of characters!
  4. 4. Themes old and new • Still practical examples and ideas about teaching information literacy • Seemed to be more about IL outside formal education & more focus on populations who weren’t students/teachers e.g. – Citizenship, rights, ethics – Older people • Sustainability/ Green focus was a good thread to get one thinking more broadly (and to debate: how much/little can IL contribute?) • I find mix of research and practice valuable and like the placing of the doctoral forum within the conference Sheila Webber, 2015
  5. 5. Parterships, networks, international connections • As would hope: exchange of practice • Network replicating research in different countries – example of paper vs. electronic preferences research • Presentations springing out of connections made at previous ECIL conferences • “Local” initiatives (from ACRL framework to a specific teaching intervention to PhD research) getting international perspectives – Could we exploit this international aspect further? Sheila Webber, 2015
