Chapter Four

Learning Strategies

Abstract

Building on our conception of information literacy and our understanding of learning and teaching, this chapter looks at research on learning strategies. If we accept that learning and information literacy are inextricably entwined, then deepening our understanding of effective and not so effective strategies for learning should allow us to better help our students become life-long, information literate learners. In this chapter, we also attempt to point out the inherent affinity between effective (deep) learning strategies, and the thoughts and actions of an information literate knowledge seeker.
