Mis/disinformation Workshop Series Workshop #3: Tackling Fake News: Know Better - Do Better (and make your friends and family do better, too)

  1. Wednesday, March 17th, 20212:00pm - 3:00pm

What should I do when I see a story I know is misleading or untrue? How do I help my family and friends be better about sharing information? How can I check up on a story to see if it’s real? Understanding the hows of fake news only gets you so far if you aren’t going to change your own behavior. This lunch-and-learn will provide tools and strategies for being better about dealing with fake news. We will show you ways to be your own fact-checker, be more selective in your sources of information, and some technologies that can help you along the way. (This is the third course in a three-part series. You must register for each workshop individually. Zoom link will be emailed to registrants prior to the session.)
