Seven Faces of Information Literacy in Higher Education

Christine Bruce, Aug 16, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Christine Bruce writes "Wise use of information, involving the adoption of personal values in relation to information use, is the distinguishing feature of this conception. Wise use of information occurs in a range of contexts including exercising judgement, making decisions, and doing research." There is a core of an interesting idea there, but it comes out sounding like a Bloom's taxonomy for information. I wish I could ban the concept of 'levels' from education research, to redirect writers away from lazy taxonomies of progression, and toward understanding complex causal relationships.
