New Handbook for Information Literacy Teaching launched

New Handbook for Information Literacy Teaching launched

We are proud to announce the launch of the 5th edition of Cardiff University’s Handbook for Information Literacy Teaching. Completely revised and now in a web-only format, the new Handbook addresses the strategic context of digital and information literacy, introduces theories and models of student learning styles, and gives advice on planning your lessons and teaching resources, assessing students, and more.

Case studies from our Subject Librarians here at Cardiff demonstrate how new teaching techniques have been put into practice and give invaluable advice to other practitioners thinking of trying them out.

Practical examples of teaching materials in use at Cardiff are provided, in formats that can be downloaded and repurposed under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence.

We hope you find the new edition of HILT useful and look forward to hearing your comments via the comment boxes on the opening page of each chapter of HILT.

    It is great news that a 5th edition of the Handbook for Information Literacy Teaching has been launched. Its previous editions are an excellent resource. Where can I get hold of the 5th edition? I don’t find it in your web when searching from my smartphone. I would really apeciate if you could point me to the actual downloadable handbook. Many thanks. Best wishes, eva

    Thank you for your question and for letting us know you find the Handbook useful. For this edition we took the decision not to make a downloadable version of the Handbook so that it could be more easily updated. This edition is web only.
