Fake News, Facts and Alternative Facts
These sessions are based on lectures offered through the UMich Teach-Out Series on the EdX platform. The course’s learning goals, as described by the Teach-Out, are to 1) distinguish between “news” and other forms of information; 2) evaluate the credibility of information claims; 3) identify psychological and logical fallacies that influence how we interpret information; 4) critically examine a news story and identify how it was produced. Participants will listen to lectures from UM professors and other experts, then engage in discussion. Additional materials and class exercises might be included.
