Ethics, Morality and Contemporary Values

Wednesday, September 18, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Illinois State Museum Auditorium

Changes in technology make finding the truth in what we hear on the news, read in newspapers and see on screens very difficult. The Tech Talk group from the Academy of Lifelong Learning at LLCC in partnership with the Illinois State Museum, is hosting a three-part series of various panels to explore what is real and ways to determine what is true on the internet and in other media.


Programs will be held at 6 p.m. at the Illinois State Museum in the Thorne Deuel Auditorium, are free, and open to the public. Each program begins at 6 p.m. Registration is requested. To Register, call 217-786-2432.

Moderator of all three programs: Jim Leach, News Director of News/Talk 94.7 & 970 WMAY
