Abstract

This qualitative study examined students' way of learning information skills in the context of Malaysian higher education. The study found students perceived the phenomenon as students actively participating in information practices that required them to engage with various information sources, necessary to complete their classroom assignments. Following the perception, the students engaged with their classroom and peer communities to assist their participation in the practices. Underpinning the perceptions is students' personal beliefs about ways of learning; which are characterized by meaning, practices, community and identity. The findings are useful to assist higher education communities to facilitate the transformation higher education students into into knowledge creators and innovators as required by the national education framework.
