Making sense of COVID-19 information

Making sense of COVID-19 information Online

New information about the COVID-19 coronavirus is being shared every day. How do we make sense of this information? How do we understand new scientific data and changing government policies? This workshop will give an overview of how scientific information is developed and shared, and how we can look beyond the political spin to the underlying scientific data. We will discuss resources and techniques for making sense of the wide range of publicly-accessible COVID-19 information as students, as researchers, and as citizens.  

Learning outcomes:

After the talk, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe how the scientific process is at play in COVID-19 research 
  • Access and evaluate information on COVID-19
