Christine Susan Bruce is presently Professor in the Faculty of Information Technology at QUT, and an associate fellow of the Australian Learning and Teaching Council. Dr. Bruce is one of the foremost international theorists on information literacy practice.
Christine has been working in the area of information literacy and information literacy education since 1989, as a library practitioner, as a research, educator, developer and consultant. Her interest in the area began as a practitioner through designing curriculum integrated instruction across all levels of civil engineering curriculum and a for-credit course to serve research students across all disciplines.
From 2001–2006, Christine served as Assistant Dean Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Information Technology at QUT. In that role, her primary responsibilities were improving the quality of teaching and learning across many sub disciplines. With Dr Sylvia Edwards and Dr Mandy Lupton, Christine developed the Six Frames for Information Literacy Education, published in 2006. She has authored or edited five titles including The Seven Faces of Information Literacy, Information Literacy Around the World, and Transforming IT Education: Promoting a Culture of Excellence, and most recently Informed Learning to be published by the American Library Association. Christine speaks and consults regularly on information literacy and information-literacy education.
