INFORMATION LITERACY PROJECT
The Tempus Project “Developing information literacy and knowledge in Western Balkan countries” provides support to the qualitative studies, as it is related to the quality control and monitoring of Higher Education Institutions. The main aim of the project is to develop useful methods for perceiving information which will lead to a successful research and knowledge transfer to users. The project will be managed by the Limerick Institute of Technology in Ireland. Tempus is the European Union’s programme which supports the modernisation of higher education in the Partner Countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Mediterranean region, mainly through university cooperation projects. LIT Library will lead a project involving 12 other higher education institutions in Romania, Greece, United Kingdom, Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro & Kosovo to develop Information Literacy (IL) for lifelong learning. The project will see the development of IL programs for lifelong learning and their use in curricula, development of innovative online IL modules for lifelong learning and the coherence between the IL programs with those currently active in Western Balkan countries. The project aims to strengthen the capacities of higher education institutions in the Western Balkans for the strategic planning and implementation of IL programs.
