Courageous Conversations is a series of workshops providing resources for inclusive teaching at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Join us for one of our sessions on campus, and join the Courageous Community to #ContinueTheConversation throughout the year.
Courageous Conversations: Standing Against Misinformation, Disinformation, and Mal-information
In today's world, we are saturated with information pollution and potentially harmful perspectives, especially those at the intersection of the environment, politics, and identity. Social Media has become central to our everyday lives but it is also a major vehicle for spreading information that is not only false, but that could lead to others being marginalized, harmed, or even targeted. Misinformation is false, but not created or shared with the intention of causing harm. Disinformation is deliberately created to mislead, harm, or manipulate a person, social group, organization, or country. Mal-information is based on fact, but used out of context to mislead, harm, or manipulate.
Join us for the first Courageous Conversations session of the academic year, where we will discuss Misinformation, Disinformation, and Mal-information (MDM), how to recognize it, and what you can do to stand against it.
Thank you to everyone that attended, Registration is now closed.
Stay tuned for the next session to be announced soon.
