InfoLit Project Shortlisted for QS Reimagine Education 2018 Award

The UGC-funded Teaching and Learning Project on Information Literacy (InfoLit) was recently shortlisted for the internationally acclaimed Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Reimagine Education 2018 Award under the Hybrid Learning Award category. Led by the PolyU Library, the InfoLit Project is a joint effort by all eight UGC-funded university libraries to help students develop information literacy habits and practices needed for inquiry-based learning in the university setting.

Dubbed as the ‘OSCAR’ of Education, Reimagine Education is a global contest co-organised by Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and the QS Quacquarelli Symonds, rewarding creative approaches at improving teaching delivery, learning outcomes and graduate employability.

This year, over 1,180 applications from 39 countries competed for awards in 16 categories, with 100+ independent judges to evaluate the submissions. Getting shortlisted is an incredible endorsement for the success to this Project.

One major delivery of this Project is InfoLit for U (MOOC), a self-paced, non-credit bearing Massive Open Online Course that helps undergraduate students understand how to use information analytically, creatively, and wisely to learn. Let’s enroll for the course NOW!
