Instructor panelists will address questions around information literacy in the classroom. Topics will include managing class dynamics around controversial topics, helping students distinguish between “safety” and “comfort” in class discussions, and dispelling misinformation and misconceptions.
The College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences for the third annual Common CAHSS Conference 2021 event themed “Truth, Information, Misinformation, and Democracy,” sought to explore the role of the modern university in supporting the “continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by which alone the truth can be found,” which has been part of the University of Wisconsin identity for over a century.
This Common CAHSS 2021: Truth talk was recorded in the Signature Lounge in the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts.
