Posted on November 04, 2021

Professor Annemaree Lloyd, a social science researcher who is based at University College London, and where she holds a Chair in the Department, presented a talk to staff members of the Information Science department on 14th October 2021, regarding her work and research on building a research and supervision culture.

Previously Professor Lloyd also held a professorial post at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science, University of Boras Sweden, and worked in Australia at Charles Sturt University.  

She conducts research into information literacies and contemporary information practices in formal and informal learning connected to workplaces, community settings and in education. Her current research program focuses on the intersection between information, learning, and the performance of practice. She is interested in the connection between information literacies, social inclusion, and collaborative learning.  

In the workplace sector, Professor Lloyds’ research explores the information experience involved in learning work practices. Current interests include an exploration of the transition from education to work and the nature of information work. In the health information field, she has been engaged in interdisciplinary research that explores nurses’ workplace learning. Her research interests extend to smart working practices in digital environments and how collaborative workplace practices are changing\being redefined  when workers are no longer physically collocated. Most recently she has written about how workers develop information resilience in rapidly changing work environments.  

In the community sector, Professor Lloyd conducts research with refugee youth and refugee groups. This research focuses on the intersection between learning, information literacies, information practices and social inclusion in everyday spaces. Of particular interest is how newcomer groups learn about their new resettlement landscapes, and the role information literacies and information practices play in placemaking, supporting informal learning, memory practices and the landscape of digital integration. She has also investigated health literacy in relation to refugee knowledge construction and the health information practices of people with chronic illness.

Her most recent research (with Dr Alison Hicks) has explored Risk and Resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Professor Lloyd is also engaged with theoretical work associated with the development of information practice, information literacy theory and landscape methodology. Annemaree’s latest book The Qualitative Landscape of Information Literacy Research (2021 Facet) examines perspectives methods and techniques used in information literacy research. 

Our thanks to Professor Lloyd for presenting to our staff members, and sharing her vast experience and expertise with us.
