The Building an Information Literate and Resilient Scotland logo, Thursday 8th September 1-4.30pm.

Information literacy – understanding how to access and use information – is the cornerstone of learning and absolutely essential in this digital age. It supports learning and decision making in all areas of human activity: education from early years through school to higher education, the workplace, adult and lifelong learning and skills development. It helps people make informed choices about health care and gives people the information they need to cope with long term medical conditions. It helps people to develop new skills and make them more employable. Perhaps most important of all, in a period of political change, it gives citizens the information they need to make informed decisions about the future of their country.

Join Scotland’s Information Literacy Community of Practice as they explore the essential role of information literacy in health & wellbeing, young people’s futures, climate activism, tackling misinformation and much more throughout this afternoon of fascinating virtual sessions.
