Centre for Information Literacy Research activities

The Department is currently being visited by Dr Yazdan Mansourian, a former doctoral student who is now Assistant Professor at Tarbiat Moallem University, Tehran, Iran. Yesterday he gave the keynote talk at a Centre for Information Literacy Research event here in Sheffield, with four other presentations from current or former postgraduate students. The photo shows (l to r) Yazdan Mansourian, Phussadee Dokphrom, Maryam Nazari and Pam McKinney (the remaining speaker was Helen Dobson).

There are two of the powerpoints online in pdf form: Dr Mansourian's Implications of the Information Visibility Model in Information Literacy Research and Practice at http://dis.shef.ac.uk/sheila/mansourianCILR2008.pdf ) Pamela McKinney's Inquiry-based Learning and information literacy at http://dis.shef.ac.uk/sheila/mckinneyCILR2008.pdf
