See you at ILI 2011 – London

The programme is up for Internet Librarian International 2011 in London October 27 & 28:

I’ll be presenting this on Friday:

C201 – Teaching Others
10.30 – 11.15
Michael Stephens, San Jose State University & Tame the Web

Expanding on his research on the effect of Learning 2.0 programmes in Australian libraries, initially done when he was the 2009 CAVAL Visiting Scholar, Michael Stephens, whose background is in public libraries, presents an overview of emerging literacies related to digital media, information exchange and education. The phrase “information literacy” has expanded well beyond its original meaning and now encompasses a wide range of media with which information professionals should be familiar and able to explain and teach to others.  

And I’m very interested in this session:
C202 – Teaching Information Skills
11.30 – 12.30
Jenny Evans, Imperial College London
Ruth Harrison, Imperial College London
Andy Tattersall, ScHARR University of Sheffield
Karen Marie Øvern, Gjøvik University College

The Learning 2.0 programme at Imperial College, based on Helene Blowers’ 23 Things idea, is now moving ahead to Research 2.0. The programme has been adapted to best meet the needs of PhD students. Engaging with the web 2.0 community has been a key objective. At ScHARR, Bite Size technology sessions, lasting only 20 minutes, have effectively helped staff and students learn something new about technology. In Norway, new methods of performing and assessing information literacy courses suggest that embedding the courses makes learning meaningful. 

Take a look at the full programme for all of the other sessions, info about the speakers and more.
