SLIS graduates Dr. Blanche Woolls (M.A., '62, Ph.D.'73) and Dr. David Loertscher (Ph.D.'73) will participate in the 2012 IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) annual conference. This year's conference will be held in Helsinki, Finland, August 11-17.
At the Information Literacy with E-Learning Special Interest Group session, Drs. Woolls and Loertscher will present a joint paper:
"In this paper, the various new learning environments available across the world are discussed and their impact on what is known as information literacy as well as the major changes in both how teachers teach and how students learn. The rise of new learning environments alongside the explosive growth of digital information requires every teacher and learner to rethink everything about teaching, learning, and learning how to learn. A look at this should help the reader make some decisions about information literacy interconnections using virtual learning environments."
