Deliverables to the end of the Project: Thank you! As agreed at 1st ILMWG meeting in Limerick- list of IL modules sent to ILMWG members January 2012- to be reviewed by each partner institution. IL modules reviewed by the Partner Institutions January/February 2012. As was emphasised at the Project Kick Off Meeting in Limerick at various Working Group meetings there are many Information Literacy Modules in existence but as has been discovered by LIT- the Coordinator, from previous management of information literacy projects  only 2-3 of these models are innovative, up to date and of real quality. In all cases bar one, these modules are at present freely available on the World Wide Web and all we are doing is pointing partner institutions towards them. In one case - Research Skills Online from Epigeum Ltd is not feely available on the WWW and a Username and Password is required. Regarding modification/customisation of these modules to suit the needs of Partner Institution - as pointed out at the ILMWG meeting in Limerick - minimum modification is advised- enough to make the modules specific to your institution.

Customisation and Modification should not try to go down to the level of Department or course as this would not be practical

Information Literacy is a generic transferable skill in the same way that “Information Technology” is hence it transcends all academic disciplines.

Also regarding use and modification of the modules - this is at the discretion of the owners of the modules - if modifications/special usage is required then permission is sought from the owners of the modules. If customisation is required costs can sometimes apply. All communication between the owners of the modules and the Project will be handled by the Coordinator.

Each Partner Institution was asked to review these modules and make recommendations about which are most suitable for your Institutions needs

Each Partner Institution had to ascertain 3 things prior to the ILMWG meeting in Brasov (Feb. 2012)

1. Is the resource suitable for your institutions needs?
2. Does it need customisation/modifications?
3. If it does need customisation/modification what exactly is required? An example of the criteria used by the institutions: Partner Institutions were asked to report on these three questions at this meeting in Brasov as well as on the processes they used to come to their recommendation.
The institutions were advised when reviewing the modules that it is best to use some kind of criteria and rank preferences in order of preference - with the resource they consider best listed first.
The first 3 listed below - the Information Literacy Tutorial from Cranfield University, United Kingdom, Research Skills Online from Epigeum Ltd, London United Kingdom and www.informationliteracy.ie from Ireland are particularly innovative and fresh with innovative use of online video featuring in some cases leading academics (see Research Skills Online) working in their respective fields with opportunities for active learning embedded within the courses. Newer Innovative Modules rich in Multimedia/Active Learning.
Information Literacy Tutorial developed by Cranfield University, United Kingdom http://info-lit.shrivenham.cranfield.ac.uk/index.html   this is a 9 module online course aimed primarily at Undergraduate students.
 
www.informationliteracy.ie  developed by Trinity College Dublin, National University of Ireland Galway, University College Cork. Aimed at higher level- Postgraduates with some content suitable for Undergraduates. Epigeum Research Skills Online - arguably the most sophisticated Research/Information Skills resource available- has entire online courses on topics such as Referencing citation and plagiarism, Research methods, Doing a literature review among many others. Aimed at Postgraduate/PhD with some content aimed at Undergraduates. At the end of each module there are opportunities for self-assessment and the resources are highly innovative with excellent use of online video.

Jerald Cavanagh
the Tempus Project Leader & PMC Chair. .... Workpackage No. 2:
Development (led by Transylvania University of Brasov) - continued from previous slide “Current IL activities in partner institutions ascertained at Didactic Working Group/Information Literacy Modules Working Group in Brasov, Romania.
IL modules reviewed and recommendations from Western Balkans institutions as to which IL modules to be implemented made at Brasov meeting.
(Deliverables No. 11 & 12) At Brasov meeting the following important dates were identified:
Before the End of April 2012 a complete printed draft of Information Literacy (IL) Syllabus & Curricula, and a printed manual of the Online IL Module should be made available and these will reach all the high level persons in the partner institutions - Rectors, Deans, Head's of Departments, for their information and comments on or before this date.
The EU partners in the project will be largely involved in making these drafts available and they may seek feedback from the partner institutions from time to time.
From 1st May 2012 to 31st December 2012 each partner institution will have this time to approve in greater detail the various IL initiatives in their Institution.

From 1st January 2013 to 1st September 2013- this time should be used to plan the actual implementation of the IL programs at each partner Institution- the Coordination, Timetabling, Promotion, Physical execution and integration into courses and structures at your Institution. (Deliverables No. 13 & 14)

September 2013 onwards will see the formal implementation and rollout of the IL programs in partner institutions- physical execution of the IL programs.
