The international Conference on Learning Information Literacy across the Globe will be held on the 10th of May 2019 at Frankfurt Main, Germany. The Conference is a final part of the Erasmus+ Project Information Literacy Online, a European project to improve students’ competencies.

In November 2016 the EU project ILO was started with the aim to develop, evaluate and disseminate a multilingual open access online course (MOOC) designed to improve students’ abilities to cope with the claims of present-day information society. In May 2019, the seven partner institutions will be able to present a MOOC on Information Literacy, covering six language and cultural areas. An integrated assessment component will enhance the autonomous learning progress.

The Conference will be a forum for the exchange of research and experience associated with Information Literacy (IL) Learning. Besides three keynotes and a panel, several tracks of paper sessions are planned. Submissions to the following topics of interest are invited:

  • IL as a learning process, including assessment
  • Digital learning resources for IL (e.g. MOOCs, Learning-scenarios, OERs)
  • Comparative studies of courses and curricula with an IL lens
  • Cultural diversity of IL
  • IL in connection with other literacy concepts
  • Many disciplines can contribute: Library and Information Science, different Learning Sciences, or Research in Cultural Diversity.

    The Proceedings of the conference will be published digitally by the 10th of June.
