UGC-funded Information Literacy Project

Enhancing information literacy in Hong Kong higher education through the development and implementation of shared interactive multimedia courseware

(26 February 2016) This UGC funded project aims to enhance information literacy among students in UGC-funded institutions by developing and implementing a shared interactive multimedia courseware, so as to foster their capacity to use information to learn, and to build students’ awareness of themselves as informed learners. In order for the courseware content to be relevant to students and their context, specific educational needs for information literacy (IL) among local university students will be surveyed and assessed to form a knowledge base, to guide the development of the evidence-based IL courseware and a self-assessment tool.

PDF version of the project’s summary is hosted at the UGC‘s website here.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is the lead institution.
