According to multiple studies and reports, the prevalence of fake news in today's media is confusing our students and patrons, and making it difficult for them to evaluate sources. Librarians have always been at the forefront of information literacy, but this recent influx of alternative facts in the media and elsewhere has highlighted the growing importance of media literacy as a critical thinking skill.
In this course, designed for librarians from all types of libraries, you will learn how to identify misinformation and alternative facts by applying various media and information literacy techniques, explore resources that can be used to separate fact from fiction, and learn how to pass this knowledge on to your patrons to help them evaluate their sources.
Attendees should have familiarity with Web browsers and the Internet. Basic HTML experience is preferred.
This course is currently not scheduled.
