Understanding the place and role of information literacy within inquiry is of vital importance for school library staff because they are a teacher’s natural partner in enabling the information-to-knowledge journey of pupils. This webinar will explore how you can draw on your information literacy skill set to enable collaborative learning through inquiry.Daniel Callison reminds us in The Evolution of Inquiry, information literacy has been a concept enveloped within inquiry since the mid-1980s. Inquiry, as defined by the Galileo Educational Network , is “a dynamic process of being open to wonder and puzzlement and coming to know and understand the world, and as such it is a stance that pervades all aspects of life and is essential to the way in which knowledge is created”.
