Thank you
Our mission will be to develop
Design and implement an in depth online survey of all partner institutions to ascertain the exact state of information literacy development and provision in each partner institution
Development of innovative online IL modules for lifelong learning for their use in curricula – use of specialised information literacy suite software and incorporating use of cutting edge active learning and use of high quality online video
Harmonisation of the IL programs with those currently active in Western Balkans countries- integration of IL programs with initiatives already existing
Strengthen the capacities of higher education institutions for the strategic planning and implementation of IL programs to install transferable skills for a competitive, dynamic, knowledge-based economy
To develop IL policy, guidelines, goals, mission e.g. guidelines for developing IL programs, online IL modules
To disseminate information about the approaches to IL development and ensure sustainability of project results – through workshops, publications, project website, interaction with National and International stakeholders, society at large
Our target groups and sectors
Undergraduate and postgraduate students in the partner institutions
Librarians and academic staff in the partner institutions
Ministries of education
National and public libraries and their users
Local Communities
The Scientific Working Group (SWG) is entrusted with establishing the Guidelines for information literacy teaching content harmonization which are devoted to evaluate the core of teaching activities and disciplines in the foreseen education network aimed at allowing a joint Academic Content Standard within the Consortium and respecting the specificity of each country. The SWG is involved also in planning and managing the production and exchange of harmonized didactic materials, with the involvement of the teaching staff of each Party.
The Information Literacy Training Working Group (ILTWG) is is involved in developing and setting up a shared version of Guidelines for the permanent training of librarians and teaching staff which will be addressed to the teaching staff for updating and upgrading specific cultural and scientific content related to the Information literacy programs. The ILTWG will plan, organize and manage events in form of seminars, workshops, meetings, short visits, web conferencing which must be aimed at updating knowledge in groups of disciplines within the Consortium.
The Evaluation Working Group (EWG) is involved in establishing specific performance indicators for evaluating the progress and the results of the specific activities during the implementation of the Action. Moreover, it will provide to the analysis and evaluation of all possible incoming problems and their impact, proposing all possible corrections to the PMC. These activities will involve also the PMC, an inter-Tempus coaching expert, the Local Committees (Article 3.8 of the Consortium Agreement) and will be performed during the whole project life.
Execution of the Plan
The Project Management Committee (PMC) is the decision-making and implementing body of the Consortium. It guarantees the correct implementation of each activity and strengthens the Best Practices within the Consortium. The PMC will have these roles:
• Control of the administrative and methodological aspects of the Action;
• Monitoring and evaluation of the phases of the Action in terms of correspondence with the expectations of the Parties and stakeholders, and with the declared objectives;
• Intervention for the resolution of possible incoming problems.
The Didactic Working Group (DWG) is aimed at editing and setting up a shared version of Guidelines for planning the Information Literacy programs in the foreseen education network, with particular care on decisional and procedural criteria regarding stakeholders and student involvements. It is also involved in planning and managing the Information Literacy programs, staff and equipment
requirements, regulations, didactic and administrative aspects, student and staff mobility and define the general framework of teaching activities and the syllabus.
Development of innovative online programs for lifelong learning and their use in curricula as appropriate: this will be achieved through the formation of the Project Management Committee (PMC) and subsequently Working Groups who will deliver on goals to didactic organisations, syllabus, IL training and implementation of IL programs.
The Information Literacy Module Working Group (ILMWG) is made up of librarians and teaching staffs of all Parties with expertise and competences in the development of online modules and online content. It is involved in establishing the Guidelines for developing, assessing, testing, evaluating fit for purpose innovative online information literacy modules and courses within the Consortium.
