Fact-Checking Sound Bites, Finding the Truth, and Avoiding Fake News

Fact-Checking Sound Bites, Finding the Truth, and Avoiding Fake News

Part of the Academic Adulting workshop series.

Do you feel constantly bombarded by information but don't know what is fact, fiction, or rumors? In this workshop, you will learn how to become your own fact-checker, understand the impact of bias, and become a more informed evaluator of the information you consume and share.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify characteristics of “fake news” and misinformation and why it exists.
  • Reflect on how our own opinions impact the way we evaluate information.
  • Practice using criteria for evaluating the information you find online.
