“Just because it’s on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s true.” If you’ve ever said that to a student, then this session is for you. Pseudoscience has always been with us, but in the era of intentional misleading and the ever-present “share” button, students now more than ever need skills to decipher truth from fiction. In this session I will share a student-developed website evaluation tool and the process used to create it. We will also discuss other strategies to encourage critical consuming of information.
