European Conference on Information Literacy 2015 Information Literacy Instruction Methods for Lower Secondary Education in Finland from Tuulikki Alamettälä. She is looking at development of a new approach, using design based research and with Kuhlthau's model of guided inquiry as a framework. As well as having steps in the inquiry process, it involves collaborative forums and inquiry tools such as journals.
Her research investigates teachers' practice and feelings and the students' learning experiences, feelings and self-efficacy (etc.); in following a guided inquiry approach. This is a longitudinal study, and includes a control group not using guided inquiry. There will be questionnaires, interviews, tests and observation. Data collection started this autumn, with an intervention in a literature course, but the data has not yet been analysed.
