An Information Literacy Framework for Wales

Last week (Monday 30th November & Tuesday 1st December 2009) John took part in An Information Literacy Framework for Wales event sharing our experiences here in Scotland. The events seems to have been a great success and we look forward to seeing Wales move forward in their strive to have  An Information Literacy Framework for Wales.

In addition to John speaking Shelia Webber also spoke about information literacy from an international point of view and other speakers spoke about what is happening in their sectors – HE, FE, schools, Public Libraries. Those present then broke into their sector groups for workshop discussions.

To read about the event there is a  blog post for RSC Wales by Karl: http://blogs.rsc-wales.ac.uk/lr/2009/12/01/an-information-literacy-framework-for-wales/
