My name is Adrian Morales. I’ll be your guide throughout this six-session class on evaluating online sources. The lessons seek to answer some essential questions:
How do you conduct database and web searches online, and what are some related concepts, tips and tricks?
How do you distinguish scholarly vs non-scholarly information?
What are some ways to evaluate information?
How can I tell between fact vs opinion?
How do you evaluate news?
Why is it important that we give credit to information creators?
How do you evaluate an author’s argument(s)? [if time allows]
I am happy that you are in my class, and look forward to being with you throughout this journey. Thank you!
