*IFLA Information Literacy Section and E-learning Special Interest Group
Joint Open Session*
*CALL FOR PAPERS* - *Extended Deadline 15th February*

Papers are invited to be presented at the 78th IFLA General Conference 
and Assembly at Helsinki, Finland, 11-17 August 2012.
Theme : Information literacy meets E-learning: *Let's talk about 
interconnections and outcomes*.*

Over the past ten years, there has been a growing awareness about the 
potential role of E-learning in the context of Information 
Literacy.E-learning is often regarded as an effective way to extend 
library presence through innovative services and to reach new communities.

Proposals must focus on one or more of the following topics :

-Is there any evidence to show that E-learning effectively promotes 
self-paced and sustainable learning in the area of information literacy 
-Has E-learning enabled libraries to extend their reach to new 
populations, or provided their existing population with new services and 
fresh possibilities for learning?
-While online tutorials are mainly used in the academic environment for 
large populations of students, what strategies have been introduced in 
public libraries to encourage lifelong E-learning?
-Are there any advantages in teaching information literacy skills using 
a virtual learning environment (VLE) or course management systems (such 
as Moodle, Blackboard, WebCT) in a blended learning context?
-Can information literacy education benefit from collaborative learning 
through forum, chat and distance learning class experiences?
-What aspects of information literacy (eg information skills 
instruction, research process education...) are significantly enhanced 
by the E-learning experience?What elements of the E-learning have the 
greatest value in information literacy training?
-Many tutorials focus specifically on information seeking and citing 
sources; can E-learning go beyond this to address a wider range of 
information literacy outcomes?
