First Year Experience in Higher Education

Today, Bill Johnston was the guest expert in my Education for Information Literacy module here at Sheffield University. I don't think I have mentioned the book he published earlier in the year:
Johnston, B. (2010) The First Year at University: Teaching Students in Transition. Open University Press.
Amongst other things, he emphasises the importance of information literacy in the first year experience at university, and for lifelong learning. You can see a description of the book and download chapter one here: http://www.mcgraw-hill.co.uk/html/0335234518.html
