Call for proposals: IFLA session: role of information literacy in fostering transition #wlic2020

There is a call from the IFLA Information Literacy Section and the School Libraries Section for the open session to be held during IFLA WLIC in Dublin, Ireland on 15-21 August, 2020, on the theme: Perspectives on the role of information literacy education in fostering a smooth transition throughout a learner’s formal education journey - from PK to 20 and beyond. Proposal abstracts must be submitted by 2 April 2020. "How are librarians building partnership within and beyond their home institutions to smooth a learner’s information literacy education journey from one place to another? At a macro level, information literacy education happens at all stages from PK to 20 and beyond. This panel will discuss how public, academic, and school libraries work together to empower learners on their information literacy skills through curriculum-based information literacy education. We are particularly interested in proposals that explore the following issues:"
- frameworks of concrete skills including inquiry process and IL skills enabling a smooth transition within and from formal education possible"
- collaborations between librarians (public, school, academic) and their institutions"
- collaborations between various libraries in teaching IL"
- transitions from primary to secondary school, ideally from the perspective of primary and secondary"
- transitions from secondary school out of formal education (i.e., transitions to life outside of school)"
- transition from secondary school to university"
- teaching of IL skills in the 'In-between' places such as workforce-to-college, college-to-workforce, grade-to-grade transition, and beyond"
