Information and Misinformation
Is this fake news? Is this disinformation? Or is this truth and is this true information? And do I want to share it? This module explores the impact of misinformation on communities and individuals. The video lecture by Dr. Michele Villagran explores misinformation and resources to help make good decisions about what to share. The Cooke essay provides a look at the renewed phenomenon of fake news and its related concepts and covers how knowledge of information behavior and critical information evaluation skills can aid in combating the effects of fake news and promote more savvy information consumption. Other resources to explore in the module offer a deep dive on a timely and important topic.
