Creating Knowledge VIII:
Practices, goals and visions for information literacy in higher education
2-3 June 2016, Reykjavík, Iceland
The 8th Creating
Knowledge conference will take place at the Hilton Nordica Hotel in Reykjavík,
Iceland, 2-3 June, 2016.
This time the
spotlight will be on practices, goals and visions for information literacy in
higher education. Under that main theme we will pay special attention to
implementation of information literacy into the curriculum, assessment of information
literacy, information literacy and writing centres, and new challenges for information
Arranged by NordINFOLIT, a Nordic collaboration forum for information literacy, Creating Knowledge conferences have been held every second or
third year in one of the Nordic countries since 1999. Creating Knowledge conferences
provide an excellent opportunity to expand cooperation and to develop joint
strategies for information literacy, that are viable for the future.
In 2016 Icelandic
universities join their forces in hosting Creating Knowledge for the second
time, first time held in Akureyri in 2003. The University of Iceland, Reykjavík
University, The University of Akureyri and Bifröst University will do their
outmost to make this a memorable event.
Save the dates: 2-3 June, 2016 -
and begin to look forward to brilliant summer days and bright nights in the
land of fire and ice
A very warm welcome to Reykjavík,
