Academic Roundtable – Fake News, Alternative Facts, and the Toxic Web: Strategies for Understanding and Coping with a Changing Media Universe

Please join us on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 12:15 pm in the CTLR located in the Davis Family Library, Suite 225.

We live now in a world where the traditional media has been supplanted by a much more complicated set of media outlets and platforms. How do we understand this new reality? What sorts of strategies might we use to keep ourselves informed? What sorts of media literacies must we cultivate in ourselves and in our students ?

Join us for a panel discussion led by Amy Collier (Office of Digital Learning), Sue Halpern (EAM), Terry Simpkins (Library), and Jason Mittell (FMMC)

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP for lunch by 4 pm on Friday, March 10, 2017.

The Academic Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Research

and the Library
