About InfoSkills...

 

Welcome to the Designing and Delivering Information Skills Training Courses (InfoSkills) web pages. InfoSkills is an online interactive course on information skills training that is being delivered by email and Web pages. The course was commissioned by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) as a pilot FOLIOz course for Australian librarians during March-May 2007 and due to its popularity is being re-run. The aim of the course is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to design and deliver successful information skills training courses.

 

The InfoSkills course begins on Monday 6th June and will end on Thursday 21st July 2011. To keep track of the course so far, see the InfoSkills archive. To see an outline of upcoming course materials and exercises, see the InfoSkills course timetable
