Germany. The Conference is a final part of the Erasmus+ Project

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

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

  • 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.
