We are presenting the keynote address at this year’s Southwestern Ohio Conference for Higher Education (SOCHE) Library Conference. The theme of the conference is Transitions in Learning: Preparing Engaged Students for the E-Learning Environment. Our collaborative keynote will examine Reinventing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy for E-Learning. We are also presenting two workshops: Trudi will conduct a workshop on team-based learning and Tom will facilitate a conversation about using emerging technologies in E-Learning. The keynote address shows metaliteracy as an evolving concept. We expand on previous talks with material from the new book we are working on and examples of student work that embody the metaliteracy concept of learner-centered production of information in participatory environments.
Tom Mackey and Trudi Jacobson will present this week at ACRL 2013, the Association of College & Research Libraries Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The presentation entitled “What’s in a Name?: Information Literacy, Metaliteracy, or Transliteracy” will explore metaliteracy in relation to other emerging literacy frameworks as well as the metacognitive dimension of the term. Trudi and Tom will also report out on the progress of the SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grant (IITG) that established a metaliteracy learning collaborative and developed new metaliteracy learning objectives (available at this blog) with SUNY colleagues.
