Presentation Description

Research on information literary and educators has focused on pre-service teachers and their need to learn information literacy skills. Little published research exists on the information-seeking habits of in-service educators. Results of a study to identify information sources used by educators and to determine if there is a relationship between information sources used and educators’ experiences or age groups will be presented. Findings of this research will be useful for those preparing pre-service teachers or providing professional development to in-service teachers who are expected to use inquiry-based or evidence-based teaching methods.
