Onine courses: Critical Information Literacy ; Addressing Misinformation

Online courses coming up in April from Library Juice Academy:

- Critical Information Literacy (Cost US $250.00) runs from April 5 - May 16, 2021 "This course is for folks who are interested in developing instruction sessions through the lens of critical information literacy. Usually we only get one-shot at engaging students with research and oftentimes evaluation, knowledge production, and privilege in publishing simply do not get addressed. Together, we will discuss how information institutions such as libraries and library systems perpetuate systemic oppression and biases, and we will learn how to navigate these systems as librarians and educators."

Each section of this online course provides participants with resources, tools, studies, and readings they can explore, opportunities for hands-on exploration, and chances to apply what they learn about misinformation to their home institutions and programs."
