On Monday April 20, 2015 at 1 P.M. Eastern we’ll be having an online session discussing assessing the reliability of online information. Rather than just delivering a webinar presenting information, this will be modeled on a “flipped classroom“.
Once you complete the registration form for the session, you will be given three websites to review along with some resources to help you frame your evaluation. During the live session, we will discuss the sites, methods useful to assessing reliability, and reasons why it’s important to vet sites. The pre-session activities should take no more than an hour, and we’ll have an hour for live interaction.
As we wrote in “Is that so?” in 2012: “It’s your reputation, time, money, health, or well-being that’s at stake when you make decisions or publish based on information you discover online. How carefully you vet that information and its source is up to you.”
