Conference Proceeding: Scrutinizing Bias and Searching for Accuracy: Information Literacy Instruction Interventions for Jewish Studies Students

Faculty from California State University Northridge (CSUN) will discuss the methods and assignments employed to teach a diverse group of undergraduate students to develop information literacy skills while gaining a basic understanding of Judaic and Jewish literacy through their enrollment in a popular general education Jewish studies course. This presentation will discuss how students are introduced to critical thinking skills through library instruction interventions that assign them to locate and analyze authoritative and scholarly information in order to help them learn how to detect the bias and misinformation that often permeates online digital searches.
