Abstract

This chapter questions and reflects on the changing role of the foreign; language and civilization lecturer as educator, when information; literacy skills are situated in an undergraduate curriculum. As such, it; does not set itself the task of providing solutions. Instead, it considers all; the complications which occur en route to a greater use of Internet-based; information sources within the discipline of French studies. In a departure; from standard academic writing, I am inserting myself directly in the; argument which follows a trajectory from my initial reluctance towards the; Internet and the changes required of me in order to adapt. This chapter uses; existing research to outline the current state of play regarding the digital; debate within education. However, rather than reaching a specific conclusion,; this chapter captures a recent moment of a situation in flux within higher; education
