Sink or Swim? A Case Study Approach to Teaching Information Evaluation
LOEX Annual Conference
Teaching evaluation skills in the highly emotional world of fake news is a daunting task. This interactive presentation will showcase a unique and engaging evaluation lesson designed by a team of librarians at Utah State University. The lesson uses realistic case studies to give students the critical distance necessary to practice evaluation before diving into their personal research and biases. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience a simulation of the lesson’s case study activity and discuss strategies for teaching students adaptable evaluation skills that they can apply in their academic, professional, and personal lives.
