Title: Harmonizing information literacy skills at the European level

Purpose The purpose of this poster is to present the ongoing Erasmus+ project on harmonization of mobility and learning outcomes in the area of information sciences (IS) at the graduate level. One part of the project will deal with harmonization in the form of two summer schools (one in 2017 and one in 2018) that will be offered to non-IS students who desire to enroll into an IS program at the master’s level. One of important outcomes of the summers schools will be, besides providing factual knowledge on chosen IS topics, to provide training on information literacy (IL) and harmonize prior student IL competencies and skills. Despite being digital natives, many higher education students lack the information and communication (ICT) literacy skills necessary to navigate and use the overabundance of information available today. These summer schools will teach and/or refresh and harmonize the IL skills of students necessary for their successful enrollment into the IS MA program at a chosen partner institution. The partners on this project are University of Osijek (Croatia), University of Graz (Austria), University of Pisa (Italy), University of Barcelona (Spain), Hacettepe University (Turkey), University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), and Hildesheim University (Germany). Design and Approach Over the course of the two-year project, partners will prepare two summer schools on ISand a final international scientific conference in Pisa (2018) where they will present the findings/results of the project. Summer schools will consist of four course modules.IS, information retrieval, methodology, and evaluation that will be taught online (prior and post summer school) and face-to-face over one week. The participants of the summers schools will be required to demonstrate an acceptable level of various kinds of IL skills in order to be able to participate in pre-summer school assignments. Those IL skills will be further trained during the summer school and, finally, demonstrated again during the post-summer school assignments. Originality and Value One of the main outputs of the project will be the document entitled Policy Recommendations for the Entry Requirements and Learning Outcomes Harmonization. This document will be adopted at the International symposium in Pisa in September 2018 and will also incorporate recommendations on the IL skill level necessary for the MA entry students. The project will also lead to a stronger networking between European IS departments, higher education institutions, s and ICT companies as well as decision-making bodies.
