Tucker blends informed learning with Meyer and Land’s threshold concepts to redesign master’s courses and uses information experience to assess students’ transformed learning experiences and relationships with information. Leek and Brown train university speech center peer tutors and recommend revising public speaking communication curricula. Ranger creates a model of relational liaising by applying Bakhtinian leadership principles to academic librarianship and gives examples that combine informed learning and scholarly communication. Fundator and Maybee transform the role of librarians in higher education to “informed learning developers.” Cunningham uses blended models that represents stakeholders’ information literacy conceptions and perceptions of their information context to promote learning in an international school community.
