Using assignment data to analyse a blended information literacy intervention: A quantitative approach

Good news story from Geoff Wallton.

His article Using assignment data to analyse a blended information literacy intervention: A quantitative approach Journal of Librarianship and Information Science, 45 (1) pp53-63, written with Mark Hepworth has been selected by the American Library Association's Library Instruction Round Table's (LIRT's) Top Twenty Committee as a 2013 Top Twenty article.

The committee noted that:

[t]he study represents a powerful advocacy piece for using a blended approach with an online discussion component in delivering information literacy to foster higher order learning in students 


Geoff says that

Quite a few people have asked me for a copy of this article in the past, so to make it more accessible and for anyone to use in their evidence base to convince our non-info pro colleagues of the value of IL I have put freely available pre-publication version of the article in our institutional repository.

If anyone would like to discuss the article please get in touch.
