Metaliteracy Presentation at ACRL 2013

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.  Follow our Twitter feed during the conference at #acrlname

3T’s Presentation: Metaliteracy in Practice

Last week’s 3T’s 2013 Conference at Empire State College was an inspiration for everyone who attended.  Sue Thomas was outstanding and provided us with an engaging and compelling keynote address.  In the afternoon session Trudi Jacobson, Tom Mackey, and Greg Bobish presented on metaliteracy with a presentation entitled “Metaliteracy in Practice: Metaliteracy sounds great but how do I teach it?”  This presentation includes reference to our article on this topic Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy as well as a preview of the book manuscript currently under development Metaliteracy for the Open Age of Social Media for ALA Books.
