Feedback form is now closed.

The Infomania Journalism course at the University of Kansas is a good example of why an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. With aid from the Libraries, Journalism faculty at the University of Kansas developed the course to prevent the debilitating impact of information overload. In this session, we will share how we co-designed inventive assignments and assessments to foster critical information and media literacy among future journalists, advertising agents, and strategic communicators.
