Digital Literacy: Determining Credibility in an Evolving Information Age!
By Claudia McGivney & Laura Costello
How should we as teachers, information professionals, and engaged citizens respond to fake news? This colloquium will explore the ways we have responded in our content and course integrated information literacy sessions and facilitate a discussion to generate ideas for how we might extend this practice across all areas of the library. Today our students need to be engaged on multiple levels to better understand and adapt to the evolving digital landscape through which most of their information is accessed. This session will help us use our information fluency to help combat fake news in our daily work.
