Have you ever wondered how Google search results are are personalized and prioritized through algorithms? Are you interested in why research is so expensive and what to do about it? Want to investigate Wikipedia and edit your own article? In this course, we'll explore those topics and many more related to information literacy, the set of skills associated with how we find, use, and evaluate information.
No expensive textbook required - all materials are freely provided as a zero-cost course!
This 3-unit class meets the General Education requirements for Area E: Lifelong Learning and we'd love to have you join us.
Library faculty have chosen class materials and activities that we hope spark your curiosity, ask you to reflect on yourself and the world, and encourage dialogue between the instructor and your classmates. Assignments ask you to apply the skills you're learning in class and each week activities will include videos, podcasts, and short readings. The class meets in-person on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10-11:15am. It's designed for all students in GE whether you're in your first year of college or catching up on a GE credit later in your academic career.
