Information Literacy and Open Education: Parallel Tracks Toward a Common DestinationBoth open education and information literacy have existed as education reform movements for nearly fifty years. The definitions of each have developed over time as the understandings of the concepts have grown and changed. While they have evolved separately, there has also been overlap and connections between the two. This article examines the evolution and connections by analyzing the content of the literature on open education and information literacy. There are lessons to be learned from parallels found in the literature. There are opportunities to be found going forward as well, in the synergy between the movements.
