Research Productivity Workshop Series

Fact-Checking & Critical Analysis to Combat Information Overload

Description

The abundance of news and media produced and shared can overwhelm even the most savvy researcher. But turning a critical eye to information found online is crucial in order to avoid misinformation and to identify the most relevant sources for one's information need. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies and tools for identifying bias (including our own!) and practice analyzing information resources in order to identify whether or not they are reliable and accurate.

Outcomes

Attendees will:

  • investigate the biases that are implicit and inherent in information production and consumption
  • identify and practice strategies and resources for fact-checking and analyzing news resources
  • discuss techniques for managing information overload

Tuesday, March 23 2:15-3:00 via Zoom
