Bio

 Hello and welcome to my English webpage

My name is Maryam Nazari, a passionate learner and teacher, and an enable consultant

I specialise in information literacy, helping individuals and organisations learn how to learn in order to build and sustain their competitive advantage and to perform better

I use my expertise to understand what people do and what they are “really” after, help them recognise and gather requirements and resources they need to reach their goals, and enable them to use the resources effectively to fulfill their goals and raise their standards

 I graduated from Information School at the Sheffield University where I studied information literacy (IL) in e-environments and in the GIS discipline. Due to its novelty, my study won several international awards and scholarships, including WUN award in 2006, John Campbell Trust scholarship in 2006 and 2008, and got published in top-ranked international journals such as Journal of Information Science, Library and Information Science Research, and Journal of Documentation

Prior to my PhD, I conducted first national project on IL in Iran. First IL course for postgraduates and first IL book in Iran are some outputs of that project. Since then I have been helping institutions and individuals make their research and educational experiences more productive, by engaging them in the concept and practice of IL

I am very much interested in contextual research and practice of information literacy as I believe IL acts as an enabler only when it is seen and conceptualised in the context of actual situations that individuals and organisations experience in their everyday life

knowledge+action=power

Building upon my teaching and research experiences in various sectors, now I work as an enable consultant and speaker, helping individuals and organisations understand and employ the unique capabilities of IL as an enabler

  Some of the Organizations and Companies that I work with are as follows

IranDoc – Iranian Research Institute for Information Science and Technology

 ECCIM – Esfahan Chamber of Commerce, Industries, and Agriculture

Sharif University of Technology

 Atiq- Gaz-e Sekkeh
