Digital Literacy Workshops
The CDSC offers a series of workshops for WSU students seeking hands-on instruction in the foundations of digital literacy. Facility with digital tools is a fundamental prerequisite for joining any contemporary profession and, as with reading and writing skills, college instructors across the disciplines expect students to arrive on campus with a foundational level of digital literacy. These workshops help all students meet those expectations, regardless of major.
Finding truth in a Web of Lies
October 19th, 2016, 3:10-4:30pm
Everyone knows the web is full of implausible stories, misinformation, hoaxes and flat-out lies. And yet most of us turn to Google first when looking for information. This workshop will help participants evaluate their own search habits and practice critical assessment skills while using online resources. Led by Dr. David Squires, Visiting Assistant Professor of Digital Humanities, English Department and Digital Technology and Culture Program.
Registration is not required for this workshop.
Bringing a laptop to work on is encouraged, but not required.
