Dr. Alison's new paper on information literacy in Vietnam's schools

Dr. Alison recently published a paper in Global Knowledge, Memory and Communication titled An information literacy teaching model for Vietnam’s schools. The study aimed to identify the ways in which information literacy (IL) in-practice initiatives are framed for Vietnam’s upper secondary students and to suggest an appropriate IL teaching model for schools in the country. The research used a qualitative multiple case study approach, including two phases of data collection. The first phase gathered data from semi-structured student interviews. The second phase included semi-structured professional interviews and an analysis of documents. The research found that time pressure, teaching method, resource issues, students’ awareness of Information Literacy and support from family are challenges for the development of IL programmes. These factors impinge upon the development of an IL teaching model for Vietnam’s upper secondary schools.
