HTI- Question authority(?): How do we talk to students about whom to trust?
March 9 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
What do you want your students to know about how knowledge is created in your discipline? How do you stay abreast of new developments and ongoing debates in your field as a scholar (and what do you tell students about your own discernment process)? What skills do you want your students to develop so they can evaluate information as critical thinkers both in your class and after the semester is over?
