Reminder: Information literacy workshops - Program for teaching

One of the long term goals for the UR library is to reach out to all UR students before they write their thesis.
This is closely connected to the workshops on Information literacy which Kent Pettersson and I facilitated in 2013 and 2014.

The participants of the workshops were supposed to produce a Program for teaching of Information literacy, related to their own context, where learning objectives and content are combined in a logical way.
Instructions and examples, as well as materials from the workshops, has been sent to the participants and we are now waiting for you all to submit your Programs.

We are looking forward to see your work and we will give you feedback as soon as we can.
