Webinar: Teaching with Metaliteracy: Developing Learners as Producers

There is a webinar on 14 July 2022, 13.30 US Central time (which is, e.g. 19.30 UK time), lasting 90 minutes: Teaching with Metaliteracy: Developing Learners as Producers, presented by Thomas Mackey and Trudi Jacobson. The cost is ALA Members US $71.10; Non Members $79.00.
"In their landmark book Metaliteracy (ALA Editions, 2014), Thomas Mackey and Trudi Jacobson created a framework for expanding the scope of traditional information skills to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments prevalent in today's world. In this webinar, they will introduce participants to the theory and practice of metaliteracy based on the most current definition of the model in their newest work, Metaliteracy in a Connected World: Developing Learners as Producers (ALA/Neal-Schuman, 2022). Participants in this event will go through the core components of this holistic framework, including learning domains, learner roles, characteristics, and the reinforcing goals and learning objectives. The instructors will explain the relationship between metaliteracy and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Participants will explore options for learning design that will meet the needs of their students and start a plan for incorporating metaliteracy in their formal or informal teaching.
