i3 programme published

The conference programme for the i3 2011 conference, June 20-23, 2011 at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, is available online at http://www.i3conference2011.org.uk and registration is still open. "i3 is concerned with the quality and effectiveness of the interaction between people and information and how this interaction can bring about change in individuals, organisations, communities and society." Information Literacy is a key theme.
Key note speakers in 2011 include Dr. Ross J. Todd (School of Communication & Information, Rutgers University), Dr. Jette Hyldegard (Royal School of Library and Information Science, Copenhagen), Dr. Eric T. Meyer (Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford) and Dr. Caroline Wilkinson (College of Life Sciences, University of Dundee).
I am co-presenting with Phussadee Dokphrom on "Conceptions of Information literacy: Result findings from the case study of undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts, Silpakorn University, Thailand" (these are findings from her PhD, which I supervised). Of my other former students, Shahd Salha should also be presenting on "The Variations and the Changes in the School librarians’ conceptions of Information Literacy."
