This event has ended.

In this Network webinar, we’ll be joined by Kate Starbird and Madeline Jalbert, two researchers from the University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public (CIP), to discuss what foundation and nonprofit communications professionals can do about mis- and dis- information. From their research in crisis informatics, collective sensemaking online, and cognitive and social psychology, Kate and Madeline will explain how mis- and disinformation influences what we see and believe online and in our lives.

We’ll Explore:

  • Why we’re all vulnerable to misinformation
  • Why it can sometimes be difficult for information consumers to believe verified, credible facts
  • What communications professionals should understand about the dynamics of mis- and disinformation online
