JISC Podcast – Interview with Philip Pothen
On Friday 28th, November last year Christine and I attended the Scottish Library and Information Council Further Education conference, at the invitation of Catherine Kearney, Assistant Director of SLIC to whom, Many Thanks. At the end of the day we were interviewed about our work by Philip Pothen, at that time, the JISC Press and PR manager. JISC has now posted the interview on its website. http://www.jisc.ac.uk/news/stories/2009/02/podcast71johncrawfordchristineirving.aspx
There are a few Ahs and Ums but the main points are there. We spoke to Philip about the role of information literacy in the education sector, the workplace, in libraries and how government agencies can be encouraged to promote it. We also emphasised that information literacy is the democratic right of every learner and citizen. The noise in the background is the sound of librarians consuming the free food and wine thoughtfully provided by JISC.
