Training Activity: Information literacy

The purpose of this four-day workshop is to prepare participants to design an appropriate and relevant information literacy curriculum for their institution.


To build upon existing training experiences, strengthen the trainer’s capacity to develop an institutional (or standalone) information literacy curriculum

By the end of the workshop, participants will have:

  • considered information literacy concepts, standards and practices
  • explored the institutional context and their stakeholders
  • begun to develop an information literacy curriculum, and defined an action plan for taking this forward
  • defined a process for engaging internal / external stakeholders, and developed an advocacy action plan
  • reflected on different learning and assessment approaches, and explored how to use technology in their teaching programme

Expectations of the Information literacy into curriculum workshop: An information literacy curriculum outline should be drafted by each institution within six months of the workshop; or another appropriate, equivalent task. Participants will be expected to report on progress.
