Book Description :

From Information Literacy to Social Epistemology: Insights from Psychology focuses on information and the ways in which information literacy relates to critical thinking in education, the workplace, and in our social life. The broad context for our interest is the development in internet technologies often characterised by terms like the ‘digital age’, leading to questions of digital participation, digital divides, and the role of thinking in the information society. In short, to what extent is the ‘digital age’ engendering changes in learning directed towards the better use of information, and in addition, encouraging or even requiring improvements in critical thinking? Provides a new and relevant contribution based on the authors' synthesis of a number of psychological constructs aligned to information literacy Addresses the issue of information literacy in the wider population by researching adult returnees to higher education and investigating their experiences in relation to prior experience Applies insights to recent developments on the topic, i.e. the Secker and Coonan IL curriculum, alowing an alternative disciplinary perspective and a new, research-based platform Develops a model based on the literature reviewed and discusses the relation of the model to the broader concept of social epistemology

Book Description :

Required reading for anyone interested in the profound relationship between digital technology and society Digital technology has become an undeniable facet of our social lives, defining our governments, communities, and personal identities. Yet with these technologies in ongoing evolution, it is difficult to gauge the full extent of their societal impact, leaving researchers and policy makers with the challenge of staying up-to-date on a field that is constantly in flux. The Oxford Handbook of Digital Technology and Society provides students, researchers, and practitioners across the technology and social science sectors with a comprehensive overview of the foundations for understanding the various relationships between digital technology and society. Combining robust computer-aided reviews of current literature from the UK Economic and Social Research Council's commissioned project "Ways of Being in a Digital Age" with newly commissioned chapters, this handbook illustrates the upcoming research questions and challenges facing the social sciences as they address the societal impacts of digital media and technologies across seven broad categories: citizenship and politics, communities and identities, communication and relationships, health and well-being, economy and sustainability, data and representation, and governance and security. Individual chapters feature important practical and ethical explorations into topics such as technology and the aging, digital literacies, work-home boundary, machines in the workforce, digital censorship and surveillance, big data governance and regulation, and technology in the public sector. The Oxford Handbook of Digital Technology and Society will equip readers with the necessary starting points and provocations in the field so that scholars and policy makers can effectively assess future research, practice, and policy.

Book Description :

Pathways into Information Literacy and Communities of Practice: Teaching Approaches and Case Studies considers the specific information literacy needs of communities of practice. As such, the book fills a gap in the literature, which has treated information literacy extensively, but has not applied it to the area of communities of practice. Since every community of practice generates, seeks, retrieves, and uses resources and sources related to the cognitive structure being researched or studied, and the tasks being performed, the need arises to undertake studies focused on real user communities, especially at a graduate level. This edited collection presents contributions from an international perspective on this key topic in library and information science. Contributions are arranged into two sections, the first exploring teaching and learning processes, and the second presenting case studies in communities of practice, including, but not limited to, health, research environments, college students, and higher education. Focuses on communities of practice, including health, research, and higher education and their distinct information needs Includes chapters from an international and experienced set of contributors Presents an interdisciplinary perspective on the topic

Book Description :

This issue draws on the expertise of librarians and faculty to highlight the central role of information literacy in higher education. The authors show how approaches to information literacy can be used to engage undergraduates in research and creative scholarship. The articles clarify definitions of information literacy and illustrate various means of curricular integration: Reforming the Undergraduate Experience Librarians as Agents of Change: Working with Curriculum Committees Using Change Agency Theory Global Educational Goals, Technology, and Information Literacy in Higher Education Information Literacy and Its Relationship to Cognitive Development and Reflective Judgment Information Literacy and First-Year Students Effective Librarian and Discipline Faculty Collaboration Models for Integrating Information Literacy into the Fabric of an Academic Institution Dynamic Purposeful Learning in Information Literacy College Student Engagement Surveys: Implications for Information Literacy Students regularly miss the relationship between the information-seeking process and the actual creation of knowledge. The authors in this issue support infusing the undergraduate curriculum with research-based learning to facilitate students' ability to define research for themselves. Most importantly, this volume argues, students' information literacy leads beyond finding information -- it actually involves their creating knowledge. This is the 114th volumes of the Jossey-Bass quarterly higher education report series New Directions for Teaching and Learning, which continues to offer a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and on the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.

Book Description :

Social epistemology is a broad set of approaches to the study of knowledge and to gain information about the social dimensions. This intellectual movement of wide crossdisciplinary sources reconstructs the problems of epistemology when knowledge is considered to be intrinsically social. In the first chapter, "Social Epistemology and Social Learning," Olivia Saracho and Bernard Spodek discuss the social and historical contexts in which different forms of knowledge are formulated based on the perspective of social epistemology. They also discuss the emergence of social epistemology, which guides researchers to investigate social phenomena in laboratory and field settings. Social factors "external" to the appropriate business of science have a major impact in the social studies researchers’ historical case studies. Thus, social studies researchers may be considered social epistemologists, because (a) they focus on knowledge of social influences and (b) they infer epistemologically significant conclusions from their sociological or anthropological research. In addition, analyses indicate that studies of scientific paradigms are basically a struggle for political power rather than reflecting reliable epistemic merit. Social studies researchers focus on knowledge of social influences on knowledge, which is analogous to the knowledge of the social epistemologists. They also use their sociological or anthropological research to infer epistemologically significant conclusions.

Book Description :

The CCCC Bibliography of Composition and Rhetoric, published for the Conference on College Composition and Communication, offers teachers and researchers an annual classified listing of scholarship on written English and its teaching at the college level. The 1991 volume lists and annotates 1,925 articles, books, dissertations, and papers that, with few exceptions, were published during the 1991 calendar year. A group of 171 contributing bibliographers prepared the citations and annotations for the entries appearing in this volume. The CCCC Bibliography includes an index of authors and editors, a subject index, and entries cross-referenced according to subject matter. Considerably more comprehensive than other bibliographies in composition studies, the CCCC Bibliography of Composition and Rhetoric draws upon a large group of experts in the field to aid teachers and researchers in sorting through a vast body of interdisciplinary material, making their work easier and more effective. Annotations accompany all entries in this volume. They describe a publication’s contents and are intended to help users determine its usefulness. Annotations are brief and, insofar as the English language allows, are meant to be descriptive, not evaluative—they explain what an entry is about while leaving readers free to judge for themselves the work’s merits. Most annotations serve one of three functions: they present the document’s thesis, main argument, or major research finding; they describe the work’s major organizational divisions; or they indicate the purpose or scope of the work. The subject index lists most of the topics discussed in the works cited in this volume. Consulting the Subject Index will help users locate sections and subsections containing large numbers of entries addressing the same topic. Each document is cited and annotated only once under one of the five major sections of the CCCC Bibliography. Each entry, however, receives an "entry number" so that cross-references to other sections are possible. This feature is especially useful because much scholarship in composition and rhetoric is interdisciplinary in nature. Cross-references appear as a listing of entry numbers, preceded by "See also," found at the end of each subsection. Entries appear under five major categories: bibliographies and checklists; theory and research; teacher education, administration, and social roles; curriculum; and testing, measurement, and evaluation. Although the CCCC Bibliography excludes master’s theses, textbooks, computer software, and book reviews from its coverage, it furnishes citations to review essays, articles appearing in some 220 journals, scholarly monographs and essay collections, dissertations abstracted in Dissertation Abstracts International, and selected documents and conference materials available through ERIC.

Book Description :

The works of literature studied in this dissertation range from a pre-Stonewall novel and various lesbian feminist texts of the 1980s and 1990s to contemporary short stories. These works represent significant contributions to contemporary theory, I maintain, precisely because they challenge not only the anticipated form that critical studies of knowledge often take but also the methods they employ. Many social theorists tend to conceive of ethnic and sexual minorities as subjects to write about, but not as subjects whose own reflections and behaviors constitute theoretical insight. In this context, this dissertation's focus on queers of color and the literature and theory they produce constitutes a corrective and a critical intervention.
