15 Credits AUTUMN



Aims/Description: The module aims to enable students to understand the concepts of information literacy and information behaviour from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Students will develop their own information literacy and understanding of its application to their future lives. The module also introduces models and theories of teaching and learning, and enables students to reflect on their development as teachers of information literacy. They will learn in class and online through lectures, practical exercises and activities carried out for the assessed coursework and in formative exercises which are an integral part of the class.
