Critical pedagogy and informational literacy in higher education: A theoretical approach

Jose Luis Evangelista-Marquez and Javier Tarango (pp. 1-14)
Addresses two fundamental aspects in higher education: critical pedagogy and information literacy (IL), taking as antecedent functional literacy principles embodied in the scientific literature by Paulo Freire and his influence in Latin America in the adult learning process. Takes the ethical implications of critical pedagogy and contributions of IL in pedagogy, as forming tendency of students and teachers as competent individuals to face the challenges of the knowledge society brand. Consider the IL as an educational process rather than merely a librarian environmental, because their spheres of action are higher in both contexts as ways to access information and knowledge.
