IFLA Directory of E-Learning Programs

The Section for Education and Training (SET) has been granted EUR 2000 to fund the first stage of the development of the IFLA Directory of E-Learning Programs. The project will be run as a collaborative activity involving LIS educators and practitioners from IFLA's regions. SET will have oversight over the project, with guidance offered by the Section for Continuing Professional Development and Workplace Learning (CPDWL). The principal coordination of research activities will achieved through the IFLA E-learning Special Interest Group (E-Learning SIG).

The IFLA Directory of E-Learning Programs will be a global guide to web-based and online LIS education and training programs, including formal academic programs, elective subjects and continuing professional development offerings. The project team is working with the editors of the World Guide to Library, Archive and Information Science Education, published by De Gruyter Saur, to ensure that information about LIS courses is current and acccurate. A model set of guidelines to identify good practice for online LIS programs is being developed to be used as a quality assurance mechanism for inclusion in the database.
