Data & Misinformation: Academic Click-bait
Thu 11/18 • 10AM - 11AM PST
What roles do academics, scientific publishers, and journalists play in perpetuating misinformation? In part two of the UCLA Library fall 2021 Data Literacy workshop series, we will examine ways academic research can get lost in translation when communicated to a non-specialist audience. What can we do, as both creators of research and consumers of popular media, to correct misconceptions and improve scholarly communication?
The UCLA Library Data Literacy workshop series explores topics that help us understand our roles in the data economy, as both consumers of data-driven products in our daily lives and creators of data-driven research within the academy. The workshops are open to all learners and require no prior knowledge or experience.
This workshop will be offered via Zoom. If you're registered, you'll receive the Zoom invitation information the day before the workshop.
