UCalgary launches resource to help faculty advance information literacy

The University of Calgary has launched a toolkit that will help students develop the skills they need to find legitimate sources and to recognize incorrect or misleading information. The Building Resilience to Misinformation: An Instructional Toolkit will support faculty as they engage students in discussions about misinformation. It contains four modules with customizable content and flexible delivery options, as well as suggested learning activities, quizzes, and resources. “It’s important to give students the tools and knowledge they need to confidently navigate the current information landscape,” said UCalgary librarian Dr Justine Wheeler. “These skills will serve them well in all aspects of their lives, now and long after they graduate.” The slides for the toolkit are publicly available on UCalgary’s website.
