He elaborated on how other educational goals, including traditional literacy, computer literacy, library skills, and critical thinking skills are related to information literacy. He elucidated upon various components of information literacy viz. locating, selecting, analysing, organizing, synthesizing, creating, presenting and evaluating.
 
He also stressed upon information literacy, independent learning and social responsibility in this context. “Instruction in information literacy skills must be integrated into the curriculum and reinforced both within and outside of the educational setting.” said Prof.Kannadasan. 
This was followed by another session on ‘Research Proposal and Managing Research Grants’ by Prof.Sumeet Gupta. He centred the discussion around the relevant themes of ‘Why to apply for research funding’,‘Elements of a research proposal’, ‘Getting the proposal right’ and ‘Managing research grants’.

He further stressed upon the positive effects this has on one’s academic career, knowledge and resources in the areas of one’s interest. He also enlightened the attendees about the two kinds of Research Funding done at IIM Raipur; namely Institute research fund and externally funded research projects.
 
Prof Gupta then explained about the elements of an effective “Research proposal”. He informed the audience about the major subtopics and delved deeper into each, explaining the best practices that can be adopted.
 
He put a lot of stress on “Getting the Proposal Right” in the next part of his address. The major stakeholders were identified as Society, Applicant and Granting Agency. He gave the attendees an insight into the criteria for awarding the grant. The ways and means of preparing a proposal was dealt with in detail. The address ended with a case study to reinforce the insights shared by Prof Gupta.
