Evaluating Resources Subscribe

Instructions:  Technology makes vast amounts of information (and misinformation) readily available. The challenge is navigating this sea of information. Our goal for your general science education is to develop your scientific literacy. A critical skill you must develop is the ability to find reputable sources for scientific information.  There are many sources of high-quality scientific information on the open web; you just need to learn how to spot them.

For this week’s discussion:

  • Select a source of anatomy and physiology information from the open web (the topic can be any topic related to anatomy and physiology or that of your research topic).
  • Evaluate the source and explain why it is or is not a credible source of information.

Use the name of your source as the title of your discussion post. You cannot use a source that one of your classmates has already used as a topic for their initial discussion post.
