Event Name:
Moving Forward Through the Fog: Navigating the Internet in a Post-Truth Era


According to some, we're living in a post-truth, alternative-fact-based era. How do you distinguish between fake and fact when looking for information? This session will arm you with tools to distinguish reality from "truthiness" and why it's so important in today's online information environment.

Learning Objectives:
  • Attendees will learn about the types of fake news and its historical context
  • Attendees will learn ways to identify fake news and other false/misleading content
  • Attendees will learn about the future of fake news and its escalation due to new technology
