Fake news vs. fact check

From millions of people marching in the streets to the US president losing access to his Twitter profile, social media platforms now hold enough power to shape how we interact with reality. Digital political communication holds a code that we analyze during this course: decoding and getting accustomed to a whole new language is important when critically interpreting our news diet. The key points of this course focus on topics such as fake news, online political communication, personal advocacy, and the governmental approach to leaks of information as well as on basic research techniques for facts checking.

I have been working for several years with associations, companies, and non-profits internationally. As a result, I have had the opportunity to engage in the political debate to advocate and create content, learning from professionals. At the same time, since coming to USI, I have discovered a true love for teaching, therefore I could not pass an opportunity like this.
