Metaliteracy in a Connected World: Developing Learners as Producers (2022)
Metaliteracy is a pedagogical model for teaching and learning that advances metacognitive thinking, and the active production of information in collaborative social settings. The core components of metaliteracy include learning domains, learner roles, characteristics, and the related goals and learning objectives.
Applying metaliteracy in practice involves several partnerships, including work with the Metaliteracy Learning Collaborative to develop metaliteracy OER available at our blog. As part of this team, we developed a connectivist Metaliteracy MOOC, and two Coursera MOOCs, Empowering Yourself in a Connected World, and Empowering Yourself in a Post-Truth World.
In addition, I am part of the project team for Intercultural Perspectives on Information Literacy and Metaliteracy, with Trudi Jacobson, that involves co-teaching a global course and participating in a thematic virtual conference featuring student presentations.
Through our honorary appointments as Extraordinary Professors at Research Unit Self-Directed Learning, Faculty of Education, North-West University, South Africa we are expanding research opportunities and developing a series of Prestige Lectures and workshops.
