Transforming information literacy instruction : threshold concepts in theory and practice

Hofer, Amy R., (author.). Lin Hanick, Silvia, (author.). Townsend, Lori, (author.).

Summary:

This book provides information literacy practitioners with a thorough exploration of how threshold concepts can be applied to information literacy, identifying the important elements and connections between each concept and relating theory to practical methods that can transform how librarians teach. A model that emerged from the Enhancing Teaching-Learning Environments project in Great Britain, threshold concepts are those transformative core ideas and processes in a given discipline that define the ways of thinking and practicing shared by experts. Once a learner grasps a threshold concept, new pathways to understanding and learning are opened up. The authors of this book provide readers with both a substantial introduction to and a working knowledge of this emerging theory and then describe how it can be adapted for local information literacy instruction contexts. -- Publisher.
