Great discussion and points made at the Lunch & Learn session hosted by Local Impact Alliance.
Topic - Improve your Media Literacy
Speaker - Jo Angela Oehrli
In an age of misinformation and information overload, how do we sort fact from fiction and reputable sources from those less reliable? Keen critical thinking skills can help to filter through the noise to get to the truth.
Jo Angela is a former high school and middle school teacher who now, as a Learning Librarian at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, helps college students find information on a wide range of topics. She is currently an adjunct lecturer for U/M's School of Information and College of Literature, Science and Arts; and is teaching a class entitled, "Fake News, Lies, and Propaganda: How to Sort Fact From Fiction."
