Overview

Much-needed guidance for updating your teaching skills and practices!

Information Literacy Instruction for Educators: Professional Knowledge for an Information Age explores various methods of instructing pre-service teachers and administrators on how to locate new subject matter and distinguish between fact, opinion, and rhetoric across a wide variety of topics. Experienced educators and librarians join forces to present a number of exemplary efforts from international communities. This book also looks at approaches for incorporating information literacy instruction into K-12 pre-service education programs.

This book will show you how to develop information literacy skills as a student, a lifelong learner, and as a professional—honing the ability to locate, evaluate, manage, and present information on any subject. This state-of-the-art text presents original thinking about collaborations between librarians and faculty members to promote information literacy as a core element of the professional knowledge for K-12 teachers and administrators in the 21st century.

In Information Literacy Instruction for Educators, you’ll learn about:

  • information literacy and digital technologies within the field of education
  • collaborations between librarians and academic staff to develop approaches to information literacy for pre-service education students
  • a collaboration between university library faculty and members of the educational studies department to meet the new state standards on information literacy and technology
  • information literacy integration in a doctoral program—incorporating and verifying standards, and an appraisal of the results
  • and more!
Information Literacy Instruction for Educators draws on examples from the United States, Canada, and Australia, articulating a multi-faceted approach to education programs that goes beyond making pre-service teachers into better students to help them become more effective information literacy instructors themselves. Special features include an annotated bibliography for further reading. This text is an important guidance tool for teacher and administrator educators, academic and school librarians, and experienced teaching staff.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Editors Shinew (Coll. of Education, Washington State Univ.) and Walter (Washington State Univ. Libs.) have collected nine peer-reviewed, previously published articles by academic librarians from the United States, Canada, and Australia that explore course-integrated collaborative information literacy programs in their library science and education applications. The editors clearly aim this volume at forward-looking educators and preservice teachers who see librarians not as impassive custodians interested only in shelving but as equals in the educational endeavor. Articles stress the importance of instilling in educators the recognition that information literacy instruction is necessary and that academic media centers are fundamental to quality education and should be so treated. Strongly recommended for professors of education, future teachers, and academic librarians who oversee education and library science collections.
