Key skill assessment unit: information literacy
As the volume of information grows in databases, libraries and on the internet, information literacy skills are key to being able to find and manage information effectively in a complex society. Information literacy is about recognising when information is needed, and locating, critically evaluating, using and presenting the information to suit a specific purpose. These skills are increasingly in demand by individuals and employers alike. In developing and assessing your information literacy skills, you will learn to use and adapt your skill confidently and effectively in different situations and contexts. This unit is designed to be studied for 1 hour per week over 50 weeks.
