Launch of the Welsh Information Literacy Framework
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Welsh Information Literacy Framework.
The Framework illustrates how learners’ information literacy develops throughout education, offering suggested learning outcomes for information literacy from entry level through to doctorates. The structure of the levels has been inspired by the recently revised SCONUL Seven Pillars core model and is aligned with both the Welsh Skills Framework for 3-19 year olds in Wales and the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales (CQFW). We are now in the process of working with Agored Cymru to develop accredited units in information literacy for each level up to and including level 4.
The Framework can be viewed on the project website at http://library.wales.org/information-literacy/national-information-literacy-framework/, or at http://library.wales.org/cy/llythrennedd-gwybodaeth/national-information-literacy-framework/ for those preferring to read it in Welsh.
Thank you to those of you who contributed to the public consultation, which was open from March 19th to April 26th 2011 and so helped shape this final document. Our thanks too, to Agored Cymru and the CQFW for their invaluable input, and to the Welsh Assembly who are supporting and funding the project.
