Information Literacy in the Age of Alt-Facts and Fake News

Thursday, March 23, 2017
1:00pm – 3:00pm

Storrs Campus
HBL Collaborative Classroom

While students who take First-Year Writing classes receive basic Information Literacy training, the needed skills evolve as they enter their majors and confront more complex real-world problems. How will you help your students make good choices in sources and guide them toward more critical reading when even the substance of fact is challenged and competing truths are purveyed? We will workshop classroom activities and assignments with participants so that you may take custom-tailored work to share with your students.
