Media Literacy Event: Information Anarchy: A Discussion of Media Consumption & Misinformation (Virtual)

This media literacy panel event brings faculty and librarians together to discuss the ways that media literacy is relevant to their respective disciplines. The intention is to emphasize the importance of media literacy by demonstrating that it is not narrow in it’s scope or impact on our communities, but rather has wide-ranging ramifications. Discussion will focus on the ways a lack of media literacy leads to individual or societal issues, but also how media literacy can make us better consumers of information and civic participants.
