Abstract

To counter foreign interference, the information resilience and skills of the Australian public must be increased in a manner that restores trust in public institutions. We define three key resilience principles – non-partisanship, speed, and transparency. We present an information literacy research program conducted in four Canberra schools in 2022, and outline an ongoing research program to develop tools to map the health of online information environments. These research projects implement our three resilience principles and could inform information literacy and information health campaigns and initiatives that will make the Australian public more resilient.
