On Tuesday I attended the regular steering group meeting of the Welsh Information Literacy project. The project is entering its second year, with an ambitious five objectives to achieve by March 2012. All the objectives for year one were met and included the setting up of a web presence, a statement on information literacy in Wales, a case studies report and drafting a framework that will provide notional levels of information literacy skills and competencies for all levels of learners. This year the project is working on establishing approved accredited units of learning linked to the framework. If you want to find out more about this cross-sector project, go to the webpage, watch the video there, read the blog, and follow the project on Twitter: @Welsh_info_lit
It was also interesting to hear during the meeting that CILIP UK is prioritising two areas of work for the next 12-18 months, one of which is information literacy. They have set up a task and finish group and are very aware of the excellent work going on in Wales (who followed Scotland!).
