with George Whitbread

Calendar Current session started Apr 17, 2024 at 6 pm

Are you frustrated by our confusing and complex world of news and information? Are you concerned about “bias” in the news media as well as online misinformation/disinformation and the effects on our society? Explore these critical topics in a nonpartisan manner from a “news literacy” perspective and discover some useful skills from the world of news and information literacy. This six part course offers an introductory “overview” session followed by five “deeper-dive” topics exploring the “ABC’s” of news literacy. Can’t commit to all six? That’s ok! Come to the first one, and then to which ever other classes you can! But fair warning: if you come to the first, you won’t want to miss the rest!
