A Network of Knowledge and Support: The development of a network of information literacy experts


Information literacy is one of the latest disciplines to reap the rewards of 'cascading training', a technique championed by INASP for its sustainability and effectiveness. The beauty of this method is that lasting relationships are forged between people in different countries facing similar challenges. Such a support network can foster the growth of information literacy in developing countries for years to come. In addition, the expertise of the local professionals who attended the initial training is both exploited and extended, making the technique doubly powerful.
