Teaching Information Literacy in an Era of Fake News

January 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Are you interested in helping students strengthen their abilities to spot fake news, bad data, or poorly framed claims? The sheer amount of information we confront daily makes the act of evaluating and verifying information a crucial academic and community skill. This workshop will explore four moves developed in Mike Caulfield’s Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers, an “instruction manual to reading on the modern internet,” is an “unabashedly practical guide for the student fact-checker.” We’ll discuss connecting these moves to assignments and habits of mind across the disciplines.

Web Literacy for Student Fact Checkers is freely available online.

Facilitated by Susanmarie Harrington, Writing in the Disciplines & Daisy Benson, UVM Libraries
