Critical Thinking and Information Literacy in the Age of Dis/Misinformation

April 5, 2022 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm
Hosted online via Zoom

Critically interrogating information is always a challenge and even more so in a time of elevated political rhetoric. In this workshop, we will investigate the affective element of information literacy and how emotions play into the circulation of disinformation and our attempts to encourage our students to engage thoughtfully with information they are exposed to. How can intellectual curiosity and empathetic engagement with the views of others be leveraged as a tool to short circuit the circulation of misinformation? We will also evaluate tools that are available and consider how they can be applied in different disciplines.

Guest Facilitator: Caitlin Shanley, Coordinator of Learning and Student Success, Temple Libraries
