Event Details:

Over the course of a lifetime, the average person will spend more than five years on social media, and nearly eight years watching TV1. In that time, we’ll encounter countless advertisements, news stories, and opinions, all of which shape our perceptions of the world and influence the decisions we make. How can one make sense of all of this information? Join Chelsea Jordan-Makely, a librarian, news junkie, and all around nerd, to learn the fundamentals of “information literacy,” including tips and tricks for finding and evaluating information. By attending this session, you’ll improve your ability to spot and call bullsh*t, and be less likely to pass it on to others.
