    October 2, 2019 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

    The term "post-truth," the Oxford Dictionaries 2016 Word of the Year, reflects an era where everyone is a few clicks away from information that supports any goal, belief, or outcome desired whether or not that information is factual. Evaluating information and recognizing "fake news" is a critical skill for everyone. For social workers, advocates, policy makers, and others responsible for human well-being, it's essential to find reliable data and other evidence to promote best practice and avoid the dangers of inaccurate information. Skill in locating and evaluating information can also help a practitioner work with clients and others who bring incorrect information into an interaction. This mini-course will address the following: - Understanding the phenomenon of fake news in the information landscape - Building strategies for spotting fake news - Addressing best approaches to locate "real" news - Learning how to fact-check data and statistics - Ways in which information is organized, structured, and delivered to support the dominant social narratives in the U.S.
