9.15 – 10.00       DiWIL – The Impact of Information Literacy in the Digital Workplace 

This panel will discuss the role of information literacy (IL) in the workplace context. Information literacy is the set of integrated information skills, including the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, the use of information in creating new knowledge, and the ability to participate ethically in communities of learning (ACRL 2015). In the workplace context, the focus is on how the organization deals with information in order to perform effectively, and how individuals and teams contribute to handling information in a good and efficient way (Forster 2017). Workplace information literacy brings forward the importance of acknowledging that employees and managers need resources to develop their information handling skills which they need when transferring their work practices through digitalization projects.
