Academic and information literacy for architecture students in collaboration between library and faculty
Session Time and Location
How can library and faculty enable architecture students to develop academic and information literacy competencies? This paper presents a collaborative project between librarians and teachers that developed as a result of changes in spatial conditions and that aims to foster a line of progression for academic and information literacy competencies from Year 1 to Year 3 students. The learning activities that the students take part in during the workshops in the library give them opportunities to develop a metacognitive approach to learning and to develop skills that can be transferred to contexts where searching for, evaluating and using information is needed. The assessment of the students assignments indicates improvements regarding academic and information literacy skills.
