TextbookAre you a lecturer, course developer or academic skills tutor wondering how to convince students of the purpose and value of engaging with further reading or a student wondering whether all this reading you are given has a purpose?  Our new “information literacy” web page explains the purpose and hidden skills you are learning in easy to understand, bite-size chunks.

It’s a little bald at the moment, comprising just the bare text, but we are working on adding images and even video clips for the start of term to make it come alive and pop with excitement.  These pages are therefore ideal for embedding in your Moodle modules or sharing with students who want to understand the process and purpose of reading and critical thinking in learning.
