September 14, 10-11 am:

Reading Between the Charts: Data Visualization and Media Literacy

Speakers: Dr. Marla Hertz, Research Data Management Librarian, and Brooke Becker, Reference Librarian & Liaison to the Social Sciences

Infographics are effective tools to both convey information and substantiate claims. However, improper processing of raw data into its final graphical form can distort the truth.  This presentation will highlight cases of poor data visualization and teach best practices to adopt when creating your own figures and tables.

Location: UAB Center for Teaching and Learning

Is Seeing Really Believing? Deepfakes, Fake Images & Media Manipulation

Speakers: Marliese Thomas, Fine Arts Librarian and Liaison to Art and Art History, World Languages, Music, Philosophy, and Theatre, and Brooke Becker, Reference Librarian & Liaison to the Social Sciences

Media manipulation may not be new, but the tactics are becoming much more sophisticated and hard to discern. From commonplace filters to AI generated fakes, how do we know what’s “real”? In this workshop we will look at examples of “deepfakes” and other fake images and talk about tips for evaluating media for classwork and everyday life.

I Saw it on Facebook: Tackling Health Misinformation

Speakers: James Gilbreath, Reference Librarian & Liaison to the School of Public Health, and Brooke Becker, Reference Librarian & Liaison to the Social Sciences

Health information is vital to our daily lives. With the rise of social media and the deluge of internet sites dedicated to "healthy living" how do you know where to turn for information that is accessible *AND* medically sound? In this presentation we will discuss valuable sources for reliable information and ways you can evaluate (and help others do so as well) what's "good for you" and what's not.
