Information literacy skills curriculum – Training activities

To help you locate and evaluate information, the library had developed several workshops and training activities  to create our own special curriculum  that teaches the following information literacy skills: 

  • Formulating effective search requests
  • Establishing what information you need
  • Determining a search strategy with the use of the right keywords
  • Assessing and selecting sources of information
  • Thoroughly analysing and processing the information for the products you generate yourself

Information literacy skills are one of the basic competencies you need as a student in a university of applied sciences. At the end of this curriculum, you will have the information literacy skills you need to be truly effective in completing your graduation requirements. These skills will benefit the quality of your final project as well as being skills you can put to excellent use after graduation.
