About the PIL Provocation Series

During 2021, Project Information Literacy, a research institute in the U.S. that studies students’ information practices, is offering virtual chats with PIL Provocation Series authors about their recent essays. Reaching beyond any one discipline or, indeed, any singular notion of what “literacy” means today, each essay  in the PIL Series offers new insights, drawing from scholarship and the flow of current events, to provoke thought and conversation among practitioners and across boundaries. This Series seeks to facilitate discussion and share ideas about improving teaching and learning while exploring new avenues for inquiry, experimentation, and further research.
