This is a four-part slow walk through JOUR 302 Information Exploration, the required course all J-School students take. The course teaches students about credibility, information sources they can’t just Google, and how to tell if a source is good enough to use in their work. Advisers will brainstorm ways to adapt this college course to their classrooms. Attendance includes access to a free online textbook. Jk, anyone can access it without attending the session: https://oen.pressbooks.pub/becredible/
