Information Literacy week in Second Life

As Peter Blogged IL awareness month in the USA, I will add that, following on from this, there is an Information Literacy Week in the virtual world of Second Life, 9-15th November 2009. There is a ning website for the week: http://infolit-week-in-sl.ning.com/ and events already lined up by a Columbian information literate (in Spanish), and by the Association of College and Research Libraries. My own students will be exhibiting their solutions to swine flu information problems on 3D models of the SCONUL 7 Pillars of information literacy.

Hi, Noting your focus and resources I wondered if the following conceptual model introduced through a website and blog -

http://hodges-model.blogspot.com/

- may be of interest?

Originally created in the UK by Brian E Hodges (Ret.) at Manchester Metropolitan University -

Hodges' Health Career - Care Domains - Model [h2cm]

http://www.p-jones.demon.co.uk/

- can help map health, social care and OTHER issues, problems and solutions. The model takes a situated and multi-contextual view across four knowledge domains:

* Interpersonal;
* Sociological;
* Empirical;
* Political.

Our links pages cover each care (knowledge) domain e.g.
INTERPERSONAL:
