Think you can separate fake news from the real thing?


Test your information literacy skills during the 2nd annual Two Truths & A Lie competition, brought to you by the Drexel University Libraries during the Week of Undergraduate Excellence.

This year, participants will play an adapted version of Factitious, an online game created to test your ability to detect fake news. Each participant will read online articles and determine if they present true or fake news.

Winners will receive fun prizes. Plus, we’ll have brain food – soft pretzels and other treats – to help you focus your thinking.

Come to play on your own or with a team. Don’t want to compete but want to support others? All members of the Drexel community are encouraged to attend and cheer on the participants.

All competing teams, individuals and audience participants should register to attend by filling out the form below.

Two Truths & A Lie is part of Drexel University’s Week of Undergraduate Excellence. For more information, visit the event page.

Location:Library Learning Terrace
Campus:University City Campus
Registration:Registration is required for this event.
Description:

The impact of research goes beyond scholarship when it engages and empowers communities beyond academia.

This year, the Drexel Libraries will go behind the scenes of this Drexel-style of civic engagement during its 2018/2019 ScholarSip event series: Communicating Research to Inspire Citizen Engagement.

During each quarterly event, a distinguished Drexel professor will offer “food for thought” on their experiences and insights of communicating their interdisciplinary research with various populations. They will explore the implications of their work and the challenges they face to bring knowledge and understanding of their research to audiences beyond their disciplines.

This quarter, we are pleased to welcome our guest speaker

Ted Daeschler, PhD
Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University 
Associate Professor, Department of Biodiversity, Earth & Environmental Science
Associate Curator of Vertebrate Zoology
Vice President for Systematic Biology and the Library

Dr. Daeschler will discuss the important role the geosciences play in understanding aspects of our past, present and future. He will share some of the challenges of communicating geoscience research to the general public and discuss how the field of paleontology can help engage the public with this important area of research.

All Drexel faculty and professional staff are invited to join us for what promise to be lively conversations with colleagues.

About ScholarSip
Now in its eighth year, ScholarSip is an annual event series hosted by the Drexel University Libraries that seeks to nurture Drexel’s intellectual life and cross-campus community through informal gatherings where faculty and professional staff exchange ideas sparked by greater awareness of interdisciplinary research.
Each event includes social time to build acquaintances and a short “food for thought” presentation from a member of the Drexel community. ScholarSip provides an opportunity for members of the Drexel community to gather for conversation – along with a toast to the end of the academic term.
