Information Literacy, a model and three standards IL Strategy Workshop Day 1 Session 2
Objectives During this session, you will: • Become familiar with an information literacy standard • Consider how models can inform strategic planning • Consider how an IL standard can help to define learner competencies • Created an IL strategic goal
Information literacy standards • ‘Information Literacy Standards for Student Learning (K-12)’ AASL & AECT, 1998 (US) • ‘Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education’ – ACRL, 2000 (US) • Information Literacy Framework: principles, standards and practice. ANZIIL & CAUL, 2004 (Australia & New Zealand) • IFLA, 2006 (International standards)
Information Literacy Standards • Established for different levels – Elementary – Secondary – Tertiary education • Customised for specific environments – Researchers – Students – Workplace etc.
Information Literacy Standards • Serves as guideline for Senior Management & IL program developers to: – Create information literacy goals – Establish a framework for achieving these goals • Used to frame: – Capacity needs (professional staff, faculty, students) – Educational goals / aspirations (institutional, departmental) – Assessment criteria (Monitoring & Evaluation)
Information Literacy Standards • All students expected to demonstrate all competencies, but not same level of proficiency or speed • Some disciplines may place greater emphasis on the mastery of certain competencies • Many of the competencies are likely to be performed recursively (not a linear process) • Institutions should first review its mission and educational goals to determine how to improve teaching and learning

Strategic statement ingredients
Does this have the right ingredients? • By 2025, UB will be a distinctively African University who has contributed to economic and social growth at a national level, and is positioned as a credible learning institution at a regional and international level?
