Will you be missing out on the IFLA Conference this August? Console yourself with a visit to Purdue University on Aug. 13, when Dr. Christine S. Bruce, of the famed “Seven Faces of Information Literacy” paper. Bruce will be the keynote speaker of Purdue’s Information Literacy Research Symposium. Bruce will be leading “Six Frames for Informed Learning” from 1-5 p.m. that day, in Hicks Undergraduate Library, Room B848.
Bruce’s talk will center on how librarians can teach undergraduates to use information in ways that support college-level learning. The six frames model is “designed to allow reflection on and analysis of how students are taught to use information within a discipline-focused classroom.” There will be group-work in this session, so come prepared to design example learning modules!
It’s free to attend, but register by Aug. 3! Move quickly, because the symposium is limited to 75 participants.
In the meantime, however, read up on Bruce’s Six Frames model in “Informed Learning,” available in the Main Stacks, with call number 370.15 B83i. If it’s checked out, then read one of her latest papers:
