Information Literacy – Searching information

In April 2019, the Ministère de l’Éducation issued a Digital Competency Framework to develop our digital skills. This framework was defined by a set of skills related to the confident, critical, and creative use of digital technology to achieve learning objectives. It consists of 12 dimensions.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to plan their research, develop strategies to research information, assess the information’s quality and reliability by cross-checking sources, in addition to note and cite authors. They will also be able to organize and classify information to be able to recover it at a later time.

Asynchronous training: Training modules are available online at any time for the duration of your access. A memory aid is provided for printing on the platform.
