MOOCs and Information Literacy

Last week I was invited to deliver an expert talk on information literacy(as blogged already and to provide a workshop for Masters students taking an information literacy option at the information and library school, KISK, at Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. It was a very enjoyable visit meeting the lively students, and staff, and also getting to know the city (which I would recommend visiting!).
This is the presentation part of the workshop I carried out with the students. In fact there is really more emphasis on thinking about library and information professionals roles in MOOCs than specifically "information literacy", but obviously developing or supporting information literacy in MOOCs are key activities for librarians. I start by talking about types of MOOC, and discuss pedagogy a little, and then provide some examples of possible LIS roles.
