dc.description.abstract Soon-to-be Professor Emerita, Margy MacMillan is currently a Senior Researcher with Project Information Literacy on their latest study "How Students Engage with News". The study surveyed over 5,800 students across 11 U.S. institutions about where they encountered news, what tools they used, what topics they followed and shared, and the role of news in their lives. It also asked specifically about the differences between their personal and academic news habits. The results were fascinating, and countered popular narratives of disengaged 'newsless' youth; on the contrary, following the news takes effort and time, and while many of the participants have developed effective strategies for managing the glut of information, others feel overwhelmed. Margy will present key findings and then open a discussion around translating the findings into teaching across the disciplines. en_US
