The main focus of this isn't information literacy - but I have put online the short paper I gave as part of a symposium on Inquiry Based Learning at the Society for Research in Higher Education conference in December 2009.
"This paper outlines approaches taken to increase student engagement in an undergraduate programme and highlights the way in which adopting an Inquiry Based Learning (IBL) approach and using virtual spaces has enabled us to extend the roles which students adopt. The context is a BSc Information Management (IM) programme"

The other speakers in the symposium were, like me Academic Fellows in the Centre for Inquiry Based Learning in the Arts and Social Sciences (CILASS): Tim Herrick from the Institute of Lifelong Learning and Claire Rishbeth from the Department of Landscape (all of us teach at Sheffield University). There is a blog post from the three of us at http://cilass.group.shef.ac.uk/?p=320
