Capacity limited to 35 participants. Your “information bubble” is smaller than you realize! Follow a fascinating demonstration on the impact of media targeting and the consequences of algorithms deciding what information reaches you. Then, learn what a professor from MU’s School of Journalism conveyed as key to evaluating a source – for both personal reading and academic writing/reporting.  Students will gain tools to identify both real and suspect media and work online in teams to practice their new skills.
