An Information Literacy Framework for Wales?
WHELF is organising a high-profile event at Gregynog on 30 November – 1 December 2009 to examine the issue of information literacy in Wales. One of the keynote speakers will be John Crawford of the Scottish Information Literacy project. The goal is to raise the profile of information literacy in Wales and work towards a framework similar to that being developed in Scotland. The event will be part funded by a £2000 information literacy grant from CyMAL.
I am finding very little information on literacy in Wales. I am tutoring teaching assistants and am trying to update my own knowledge and understanding of literacy in Wales, as I am aware I need to continually upgrade my own knowledge in this area as a Primary School Teacher NQT. However I am surprised at how little available information is available on literacy in Wales.
