Evaluating Information Sources: Teaching the Lateral Reading Strategy

Submitted by Kathy Yoder,

 Evaluating information sources for credibility and relevance is one of the most challenging tasks for many students. The “lateral reading” method is an evidence-based strategy for evaluating sources, especially websites, that can help students more effectively identify trustworthy information. In this workshop, part of the University Libraries Information Literacy Virtual Workshop series, participants will learn more about the lateral reading strategy and will be provided with strategies and resources that they can use to teach students the lateral reading method.
   This workshop is open to all faculty, instructors, graduate teaching associates, and staff at Ohio State. Instructors and librarians from other institutions are also welcome to attend. This workshop will take place, via Zoom, on Thursday, September 22 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 pm.
