Transformation Through Collaboration
This proposal is to enhance the digital learning experience of Defence Force
students when finding, using and managing information during their academic
studies.
Information literacy can be a challenge for students particularly when using digital
resources.
For many of the Defence Forces students, their use of library resources is
primarily off campus thus their learning experience in terms of using library
online resources is challenging.
This project is made possible by the financial contribution from the Teaching and
Learning Enhancement Fund (Driving Enhancement of Digital Capacity for Impact in Irish
Higher Education) 2015.
Transformation Through Collaboration
Information literacy is a mean to
“empower people in all walks of life to
seek, evaluate, use and create information
effectively to achieve their personal, social,
occupational and educational goals”
(Horton, 2005)
