Meera Garud Presents as part of UHWO’s Misinformation Week

LIS Instructor Meera Garud, MLISc gave a talk on “Getting Past the Trigger: Learning How to Navigate Misinformation with Grace” as part of UH West Oʻahu Library’s Misinformation Week on March 20, 2023. This weeklong event raised awareness about this important topic with nine sessions led by faculty, college librarians, public librarians, and school librarians. Kapolei High School students also visited the UHWO campus to learn how to be responsible users of information. Garud’s talk allowed participants to learn about the role everyone plays in unintentionally sharing misinformation, and how we can practice mindfulness when we encounter emotionally triggering news.
