How to find news you can trust (webinar series)

12 April 2023 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Consuming news is a daily habit for many people. How can we determine whether sources are credible?

The News Literacy Project offers a free webinar series to help you successfully navigate our crowded and rapidly changing information landscape.

Sessions last 45 minutes and are set for 4 p.m. ET April 12, 19 and 26.

Register once to access all three sessions.

Session 1: April 12: What is Quality Journalism?

News outlets help us make informed decisions as engaged citizens in a democracy, but the process of creating the news isn’t always transparent. This session will pull the curtain back on how quality, ethical journalism is done and how it seeks to inform us fairly and accurately.

Session 2: April 19: Understanding News Media Bias

People frequently perceive and allege bias in news coverage, but what does this really mean? What makes a piece of news biased, and who decides? This session will empower you to evaluate the fairness, accuracy and impartiality of news coverage.

Session 3: April 26: How Fact-checking Works

With the digital deluge of misinformation, it’s getting more difficult to know what to trust. A number of fact-checking organizations have emerged and have debunked some of the most viral false images and videos springing up on social media. We’ll learn about the work professional fact-checkers do and skills we can use to do our own fact-checking.
