Information Literacy Landscapes: Information literacy in education, workplace and everyday contexts

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Drawing on the author's ongoing research into information literacy, this work explores the nature of the phenomenon from a socio-cultural perspective, which offers a more holistic approach to understanding information literacy as a catalyst for learning. This perspective emphasizes the dynamic relationship between learner and environment in the construction of knowledge. The approach underlines the importance of contextuality, through which social, cultural and embodied factors influence formal and informal learning.This book contributes to our understanding of information literacy and its role in formal and informal contexts.
