The Colloquium seeks to explore which pedagogical strategies and theoretical perspectives librarians might employ to engage students in complex conversations about the nature of credibility, truth, and authority. Attendees of this colloquium will have the opportunity to participate in 90 minute workshops designed to engage participants in raising questions, proposing solutions, and generating ideas around information literacy instruction in the current sociopolitical climate. Workshop descriptions and additional information about the event are available via the Colloquium website.
