UNESCO has developed a teaching resource that addresses this challenge: Journalism, 'Fake news' and disinformation: guideline on academic and professional training for journalists.
Join us for a lively webinar on 12 April, 2021 to discuss the problem of fake news and disinformation in Russia and surrounding states, and how journalism educators can think through the complexities of teaching it in class.
Once you have registered for the webinar, you will receive a link to the Zoom room for the event.
About the UNESCO publication:
Journalism, 'Fake news' and disinformation
Serving as a model curriculum, the publication is designed to give journalism educators and trainers a framework and lessons to help students and practitioners of journalism to navigate the issues associated with ‘fake news’.
The contents draw together the input of leading international journalism educators, researchers and thinkers who are helping to update journalism method and practice to deal with the challenges of misinformation and disinformation.
The lessons are contextual, theoretical and in the case of online verification, extremely practical. Used together as a course, or independently, they can help refresh existing teaching modules or create new offerings.
