This first lecture will trace the origins of the metaliteracy framework in relation to changing conceptions of information literacy and revolutionary changes in the social information environment. We will explore the evolution of metaliteracy as a distinct model with core components that include a focus on learning domains, active learner roles, associated characteristics, and reinforcing goals and learning objectives.
Prestige Lecture 2: Open Pedagogy and Metaliteracy with Pros. Trudi Jacobson and Tom Mackey
Tuesday 8 March 2022 8:00AM-9:00AM (Eastern time). Register here:
The use of open pedagogy provides students with the opportunity to engage deeply in their own learning, but the responsibilities involved may be unfamiliar and stressful. The metaliteracy framework provides scaffolding that encourages student success. This lecture will delve into how metaliteracy and open pedagogy can work hand-in-hand.
Join us for both lectures exploring the metaliteracy framework and its application in pedagogical situations.
In 2019, Tom and Trudi presented a Prestige Lecture in person at NWU in South Africa at the invitation of Jako Olivier, UNESCO Chair on Multimodal Learning and OER and Professor in Multimodal Learning about Exploring the Foundation of Metaliteracy in Theory and Practice.
We hope to see you at the newest lecture series available online! Be sure to register today!
