Fake News

Thursday 18th January 4.30-6pm  

CSM Learning Zone Pod A/B/C


What is fake news? How do you spot it? How can you navigate the post-truth media landscape?

In this interactive workshop you’ll be introduced to a range of fake news case studies; examining fake news both historically and within its modern day context. We will look at the different forms fake news takes; as well as considering the intended purpose behind this, looking at both social and mainstream media.

Through various activities you’ll have the chance to compare bias in different information streams and work on your ability to critically evaluate a range of sources.
