Webinar: Beyond CRAAP: SIFT & Information Literacy!

On 24 March 2021 at 10am US Pacific time (which will be eg. 5pm UK time, since the UK has not yet changed to summertime) there is a webinar CRAAP: SIFT & Information Literacy! organised by Lifelong Information Literacy (LILi) "How do we teach information literacy in an online environment? How many of us are using outdated techniques (such as CRAAP) as outlined by Sam Wineburg of Stanford History Education Group? What is lateral reading and how do fact-checkers use it to evaluate information and sources? Is lateral reading something that comes naturally or instinctively to students or is it a learned skill? Come hear some thoughts about all of this and then let's brainstorm how to better teach information literacy to our students and to get information literacy embedded in every class on our campuses. To provide an example, we are delighted to have CSUN Research and Instruction Librarian Jamie Johnson share with us how she implemented Lateral Reading strategies in U100, a freshman seminar course."
