The IFLA Information Literacy Section in partnership with the IFLA Library Theory and Research Section invites proposals for a session at the IFLA World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) in Athens Greece, August 24 – 30th, 2019. The theme is Information Literacy in Context: Research Informing Practice and Practice Informing Research. The deadline is 24 March 2019. "The session aims to connect theory and practice by addressing the challenges of applying theory to practice and the impact of practical work on theory building. We invite critical, analytical and contextual contributions on how theoretical or methodological approaches can be used to inform practice and how practical experiences can inform research to build new models or to modify existing models. Suggested topics are, for example: Frameworks, guidelines and standards for information literacy – Application and adaptation in different contexts; Educational theory and information literacy; The geography of information literacy – the impact of politics, economic prosperity and culture on information literacy and information literacy education; The status of librarians in different societies – the impact on their role as teachers of information literacy and possible strategies for being effective information literacy educators; Building communities of practice among information literacy educators; Contextual models – how they inform practical aspects of information literacy education".
