From Fake News to Clickbait: Teaching Students to Evaluate Online Information


A recent Stanford study concluded that most students lack the critical skills to evaluate different kinds of online information. In this hands-on workshop, we will discuss recent research about students’ online reasoning skills, identify specific skill gaps among Duke students, and suggest lessons and activities that can be incorporated into the classroom. 

Details: Monday, April 3rd, 12-1:30 PM, Perkins 217

*Register here*. Please bring a device or laptop to the session. Lunch will be provided.
