Course Details:

This course will appeal to librarians who are looking to become more involved in working with staff and students at developing advanced research skills.  It will introduce the basics concepts of Information Literacy (IL) and how to use it to develop independent learners.  During the day delegates will investigate how to tailor IL skills development for the needs of post-16 students and help them to meet the requirements of Extended Project Qualifications, with specific reference to the requirements of the AQA Bac. 
By the end of the day they will have a greater awareness of Web 2.0 tools that can help post-16 students to develop their IL skills, obtained practical ideas of how to present IL skills to post-16 students and enhanced their understanding of the importance of IL to post 16 students.
