Only Connect: The varying conceptions of information literacy across an International Middle School community

Presented by RGU iSchool Making Connections

Date: May 3rd 14:00

Venue: Room 608/609, Aberdeen Business School, Garthdee Campus, RGU

Details: This seminar offers participants the opportunity to learn about the preliminary findings from a phenomenographic study of the ways seven different stakeholder groups including students, parents, teachers, library and IT personnel, administrators and leadership understand information literacy (IL). This study uniquely places the spotlight on IL from multiple stakeholder perspectives yielding for the first time a more comprehensive understanding of IL in an international school context. The seminar also serves to provide a platform for participants to explore the implications of these findings for professional practice in the Library and Information profession, curriculum development, professional development for staff and faculty, home school collaboration around IL learning and organisational learning. The study's author Veronica Cunningham has worked in different countries in the field of international education in the library and information and curriculum development areas. She is currently based in Oslo and is undertaking this research as part of the Doctorate in Information Science Degree Programme. The research and its findings are currently in the final write up phase and are of relevance to those concerned with shaping, leading and implementing IL strategy in learning communities worldwide.

This seminar is free of charge but for planning purposes it will be helpful if you can let us know you will be attending - please email Agnieszka Kruk-Omenzetter (
