Event Description

Please note: This workshop is for graduate students who have a teaching assignment, a teaching assistantship, or who wish to teach in the future. This workshop counts as an additional professional development opportunity for those participating in the Future Faculty certificate program.

With so much technology at our fingertips, our society has become inundated with information. This has left students in a challenging position, susceptible to fake news and unsure how to find and use reliable, scholarly sources. This workshop will provide participants with strategies and tools to help their students evaluate the resources they interact with, both when working on assignments and in their daily lives. We’ll cover how to approach our changing information landscape and discover strategies for helping students understand information sources—be it fake news, scholarly articles, or something in-between. At the end of the workshop, participants will develop a resource evaluation activity for one or more of their courses. Registration is required.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
