You Can’t Get a Degree from “Google University”: Critically Evaluating Internet Sources

Date and Time:
August 1, 2019 10:00 am - 12:00 am (MST)
Location:
Online Webinar
Description:

The AU Library is pleased to announce that we will be offering our first-ever online workshop this summer hosted by Joanna Nemeth, Digital Literacy Librarian, and Jennifer Rempel, Information Literacy and Resource Access Librarian. 

The Internet can be an excellent tool for carrying out research, and for finding reliable information and up-to-the minute news and data. But the information you find online has not always been written or created by an expert, nor has it typically been vetted through a traditional publishing or editing process. This means that information found online can be very difficult to verify and to trust, and so must be looked at with a critical eye.

This new workshop from AU Library will teach you how to evaluate internet resources through a combination of instruction and interactive web-based activities.

Questions can be directed to Jennifer Rempel, at jrempel@athabascau.ca or 780-675-6257.
