E-learning and information literacy: initiatives and challenges

Joint IFM Healthcare and Libraries for Nursing Study Day
Leeds University Library, Monday 14 November 2005, 10.30 - 16.00

E-learning and information literacy: initiatives and challenges

Lifelong learning is part of all healthcare professionals' lives, and e-learning and information literacy have important roles to play within it. This study day will be an opportunity to share experiences and gain ideas. It will consist of a mix of presentations, group discussions and opportunities to explore some on-line resources.

  • Present and future challenges of information literacy (Peter Godwin, Academic Services Manager, London South Bank University)
  • Implementing an information literacy audit in the context of nurse education (Alison Lahlafi, Faculty Team Librarian, and David Clarke, School of Healthcare, Leeds University)
  • Key e-learning themes and developments (David Peacock, Knowledge Service Manager, Northumberland Tyne & Wear SHA)
  • Creating multiple choice questions for a virtual learning environment for nurses (Karen Smith, York University)
  • E-learning for health librarians (FOLIO Team, Sheffield University)

  • RCN e-learning resources (Caroline Lynch and Angela Perrett, Royal College of Nursing)

  • How do we asses the effectiveness of information skills training? (Alison Brettle, Salford University, and Joanne Greenhalgh, Leeds University)
