Fake News, Information Literacy and Teaching College Students by TTW Contributor Troy Swanson


Is expertise no longer relevant? What is the difference between expertise and authority? How do we introduce students to these ideas within a world where fake news is prevalent? These are some of questions answered by Bill Badke in my interview with him on the Circulating Ideas podcast.

This interview is available at: Circulating Ideas episode 113: William Badke.

William Badke is Associate Librarian at Trinity Western University, Canada, with responsibility for information resources and research training at the Associated Canadian Theological Schools. He is author of numerous articles and the widely used textbook, Research Strategies: Finding your Way through the Information Fog 6th edition.

This interview is part of a series I am doing on fake news & information literacy. My previous interviews can be found here:
