Researching Students’ Information Choices: Determining Identity and Judging Credibility in Digital Spaces

What Does the Advisory Panel Do?

The Advisory Panel consists of 11 practitioners including librarians (school, public, and college), STEM instructors representing the three overarching student populations (primary, secondary, and college/university), and research team members. Over the course of the three year study, the Advisory Panel will:

  • Collaborate with the research team to provide appropriate scenarios and content for simulations in their age group area(s).
  • Participate in pilot study activities.
  • Serve as a liaison between their institution and research team.
  • Assist in distribution of prescreen survey and recruitment of 20-30 simulation session participants from their sites.
