Abstract

In conjunction with the Public Health Science department at a mid-sized Midwestern university, one librarian and one teaching faculty member are producing a learning module designed to aid students in recognizing and dispelling mis- and disinformation related to public health. Focusing on key considerations in assessing how truthful or misleading an assertion is, this module will illustrate such questions as “What is a fact? What is an opinion? What makes them different from each other?” using public health-related examples. Presenters will discuss the design process they are using to craft the module’s elements, and produce it in a format that can easily integrate into the university’s learning management system. Additionally, presenters will address the challenges of designing a direct assessment tool for an asynchronous module that is not linked to specific classes or class assignments. Audience members will learn about the creative process that has gone into this teaching module with a specific eye towards how they can themselves adapt this tool or create their own for a similar purpose at their home institutions.
