The University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public, in partnership with Washington State University’s Edward R. Murrow School of Communication, will present MisinfoDay 2021 on Thursday, March 18 and invites middle and high school teachers and librarians to register their classes by March 11.
During this free, virtual event, students will learn to identify and combat mis- and disinformation through speaker presentations and interactive activities in morning and afternoon sessions.
Sessions will focus on spotting misinformation; fact-checking claims and sources; understanding the landscape of information disorder; and disinformation goals and tactics. Most sessions will be open to both middle and high school students. For more details on sessions and facilitators, scroll down or see the registration page.
Event sessions will be livestreamed on YouTube and recordings will be made available following the event for those who cannot watch live.
