Perspectives on Science and Information Literacy (FYO/Blue Card)
Wednesday, March 26, 2014, 5:30 – 6:30 PM – MLC 148
Panel discussion with Dr. Peggy Brickman (Biology) and Dr. Shawn Glynn (Education). Moderated by Science Librarians.
Promoting science literacy is a challenge in the complex web of politics, industry, and academia. How do we teach essential research skills and, at the same time, encourage nuanced understandings of scientific discourse? What does it mean to be critical consumers of scientific information in a media environment that exploits and questions the validity of science research?
This is a First-Year Odyssey/Blue Card Event.
