Student Learning in the Information Age

Patricia Breivik

$49.99

Paperback
The author offers an in-depth examination of resource-based learning as an important new paradigm for higher education. This concept shifts the focus from teaching to learning by requiring students to select their own learning materials from a wide range of real world information resources. A resource-based approach helps students assume more responsibility for their own learning, and it provides a practical means of addressing differences in students' educational needs. Breivik highlights examples of colleges and universities that already are using this approach successfully, and it offers a framework to help educators create their own resource-based learning programmes. This new work should be of value to academic leaders and faculty members who are concerned with preparing students for lifelong learning. It also should be of significant interest to campus information providers.

- Publisher "This easy-to-read volume provides the rationale and means to promote and create a successful information literacy program....Especially useful are the nuts-and-bolts chapters on establishing an information literacy program....Perhaps the most imporant aspect of the book is Breivik's savvy approach to the challenges of human resources in and outside the library....With more than twenty pages of appendices, Breivik provides ample information to support any new information literacy endeavor.This volume is an important resource for all academic libraries that are looking at ways to create information literacy programs or to enhance existing instructional programs. Instruction libraries unsure of where to start in the implementation of a new literacy program will be well served by the information found in this book."- College and Research Libraries
