Information Literacy in Europe

This PowerPoint was presented at the UNESCO-sponsored Training the Trainers (TTT) Information Literacy seminar held in Quebec City, Canada, 8-9 August 2008, as mentioned before. The programme included presentations on information literacy developments in different regions of the world. I presented an overview of European developments: I have added a few notes in this version, including one emphasising that there is a lot going on in many European countries, so in some cases I have given a few examples out of many. The four themed areas (Health, Business, Citizenship/Governance and Education) are ones used by UNESCO in discussing information literacy in some of its major reports.
