Plating up Information Literacy as a Social Practice: A Slice of the Literature
Fafeita, Jenny; Lloyd, Annemaree
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v43 n2 p92-101 Jun 2012
Few studies in the Library and Information Studies field investigate how vocational workers use information in their learning and workplace practice. This paper introduces doctoral research that explores how apprentice chefs develop information literacy practices that enable them to learn their trade and engage with the professional practices of chefs. In this paper we introduce practice theory as the theoretical framework of the study and explore the literature related to the chef's learning. We also consider the potential of the information practice approach in extending information literacy theory.
