Fighting Back Against Fake News Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Friday, October 30, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

There’s nothing fake about the impact of fake news. As citizens and information professionals, we have a social and ethical responsibility to share information that is true. Fact-checking is a form of activism that, with a little practice, can become second nature.

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to evaluate sources and check for facts and authority—and just as important, you’ll learn how to assist your patrons and community in doing the same. Information literacy expert Dawn Stahura will show you techniques like the ACT UP evaluation method and how to teach them to coworkers and patrons alike.
 

By participating in this workshop, you will:

•    Gain a working knowledge of fact-checking resources and how to share them with patrons
•    Understand the emotional component of searching for information and its impact
•    Understand the fundamentals of evaluating health information
•    Learn a series of information literacy exercises to share with patrons & coworkers
