Disinformation in the Time of the Corona Virus (Live/Pre-Register)
June 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Pam Steager will present and lead a discussion on pressing current and generational issues of media literacy – the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act on the barrage of messages we receive daily via the media, whether in old print-based forms or in the ever-changing 21st century media. This is an increasingly important topic, particularly in the current election season.
Pre-registration is required.
Please respond to Ada Winsten (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are joining, or if you have any questions.
