Out of the Boot Camp and into the Chrysalis: A Reflective Practice Case Study
Macdonald, Katrina
Australian Library Journal, v58 n1 p17-27 Feb 2009
From the information literacy educator's perspective, librarians have the potential to play important roles in strengthening information literacy elements within curricula learning scaffolds. While there needs to be an increased awareness amongst academics about the forms of assistance teaching librarians can provide teachers as integrated curriculum support resources, there is also a need for information literacy librarians to engage in reflective practice in order to break down the self-perceptions and taken-for-granted attitudes that can represent barriers to professional growth and development. In this article, I present a personal case study of one information literacy librarian's experience of coming to accept the role of educator in a tertiary education context.
