SOCHE Library Conference
Transitions in Learning: Preparing Engaged Students for the E-Learning Environment


As Libraries are more heavily involved in research instruction in the growing on-line environment, it becomes more critical to shift from traditional understandings of information literacy development to the skills necessary to function in today’s networked learning environments.  This conference will explore the impact that current trends in open and on-line learning have on information literacy development in the e-learning environment.  The sessions will focus on changing teaching practices to promote metaliteracy, enhancing the information literacy and self-empowerment of learners, and integrating metaliteracy components into course-related instruction.
