Event Overview

Fake News as a term has risen in popularity over the last 5 years, though the art of creating factitious statements and propaganda has been around for a lot longer. But how can we distinguish the truth from false facts, and what is the point of it?

As we experience information, video and photographic coverage from a war, join us to explore how we can differentiate between propaganda, disinformation and valid materials. This session will explore disinformation as a tactic and discuss skills which will help you to differentiate between deliberate, mistaken and reliable material.

This session will last around 60 minutes, with plenty of time for audience questions.
