Research Student Seminar - Information Literacy Experiences of English for Speakers of Other Languages Learners

On Tuesday 2 June Information School PhD student Jess Elmore will present a research seminar on 'an exploration of the information literacy experiences of ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learners.'

ESOL learners are people who have come to the UK for work, to join family or to claim asylum, who are learning English as part of adult basic skills provision. There has to date been little exploration of their information literacy experiences. This seminar presents the first stages of doctoral research which investigates the relationship between ESOL learning and information literacy. The research will be a qualitative longitudinal case study of three community ESOL classes. The seminar will discuss the planned multi-method participatory approach and the analytical and methodological findings from the completed pilot study.

The seminar takes place at 2pm in RC-231, Regent Court. All are welcome and there is no need to book.
