Reclaiming IL

Abstract:

This chapter explores empirical examples of a radical approach to the teaching of IL, investigating the usefulness of narrative-based approaches to teaching: action research; Bakhtinian pedagogies, and more. It investigates what might be done inside the library, but also beyond it, in classrooms and workplaces, communities and families. Radical IL happens whenever the assumptions around which we base our learning and practice are called into question and scrutinised in democratic, participatory ways. Methods presented here help practitioners ‘train their eyes’ and see when others are doing it well, so these experiences can be evaluated and applied in a different context, as appropriate.
