Understanding and Sharing Information in the Age of Social Media
Facts aren't always the basis for public opinion and people are often swayed by appeals to their emotions and diverse personal belief systems. It is important to apply evaluation skills to everyday life to ensure positive and professional interactions. This presentation showcases tools and strategies to help the audience navigate today's socially and politically charged information climate. Interactive activities will help participants practice these skills to find and interpret quality information.
