For some undergraduate students, it can be increasingly difficult to distinguish fact from fiction in an online environment. On top of this, students can be so overwhelmed by the massive amount of information that they have problems finding and identifying accurate information for their research. Enter the Critical Thinking Online Toolkit.
As a series of assignments and modules in Canvas, this Toolkit provides materials for instructors across all IU campuses to help students hone their information literacy skills: identify and evaluate valid sources of information, synthesize that information, and construct and communicate knowledge for their academic work and everyday lives.
Come learn about more about the Toolkit: what it is, where it is, and how it’s helping instructors across IU campuses engage their students to navigate and critically assess information in an online environment.
