Library and academic staff from five Central and Eastern European universities participated in the course, which is based on principles of collaborative and experiential online learning and has as its goal the development by participants of information literacy courses tailored to the needs of user groups within each of the five partner universities. The paper describes the pedagogic approach; main features of the DEDICATE course and its technological environment; and implementation and evaluation. (Contains 15 references.) (Author/AEF)
