In the "misinformation" age, it can be difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction, especially when we are inundated with a seemingly infinite cycle of media being copied, shared, retweeted, and modified. Deep fake videos are challenging our ability to know what is real. How do we assess authority and authenticity in a digital world? How do we model ethical information behaviors for our students?
Join us to discuss viral media and what we can do to help students understand how and why to authenticate digital sources. Library staff will also share strategies for facilitating critical discussions about citations, copyright, and ownership to further our students’ contributions to the scholarly conversation.
