Teaching Resource

Home for the IMLS Grant RE-72-17-0103-17 - “RE:Search” - Unpacking the Algorithms That Shape Our UX.


Algorithms are not neutral but this does not mean they are not useful tools for research. In this workshop on algorithmic bias, student learn how algorithms can perpetuate bias and discrimination and how to critically evaluate their search results.


This algorithmic literacy workshop puts a new spin on media literacy by moving beyond fake news to examine the algorithms that shape our online experiences and how we encounter information in our everyday lives.
