Seven Things Every Instructor Should Know About Fake News!

October 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

#1: Don’t fall for click-bait headlines like the one above!

Join us for an informal discussion about strategies and suggestions for helping students better navigate “alternative facts,” unreliable sources, and sloppy sharing. In particular, how can students evaluate news sources effectively for veracity and value as sources? How do we address gaps in their media and digital literacy skills?

We encourage participants to share their assignments or ideas for assignments as well as any questions or challenges they want to discuss.

Registration is not required, but please RSVP so we know how many people to expect. Light refreshments will be served.
