Understanding and fighting fake news

Accusations of fake news have been rampant, but what do they really mean? And do you have any role in spreading it? This course will teach you the meaning and origin of misinformation and disinformation, how to spot it and will let you develop and practice techniques to keep from spreading it. Three instructor-led sessions are complemented by opportunities to practice with others in the course and become a part of the community of people who think critically about the news.
