TV, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Newspapers and Magazines - Let’s face it, there is not a lack of places to find your news. But with outcries of “fake news” and “alternative facts,” it can be easy to get lost or confused in the fray. Based on his lecture titled “Staying Informed” from the Duke Coursera course Civic Engagement in American Democracy, we will hear from Professor Bill Adair, whose research focuses on fact-checking and how to use technology to automate journalism. In this lecture, we will learn the finer points of navigating the news and how to be a smart news consumer as well as an informed citizen. Participation in the Coursera for Duke Alumni course is not a pre-requisite for this session.

Speaker:

  • Bill Adair, Knight Professor of the Practice of Journalism and Public Policy and Director of the DeWitt Wallace Center for Media & Democracy
