Abstract

A result of an extensive collaboration between a librarian and a public health professor, this presentation presents the development and deployment of a teaching module designed to instruct public health students in a university setting on how best to recognize and avoid (or challenge) misinformation and disinformation. Strategies for helping students understand the contours of misinformation and disinformation are presented, as are strategies for teaching them how to resist such false or misleading information. Assessing the effectiveness of these strategies, and by extension the effectiveness of the module, are presented as well. While the main audience for this presentation is likely to be academic librarians, we will discuss methods in which this module can be adapted to other library patron groups and other library settings.
