Dibner workshop #1 Real or Fake?: How to spot fake news and fake science


The popularity of social media and the 24 hour news cycle have helped create avenues for fake and sensationalized news to prosper not only in the realms of journalism and politics, but throughout the sciences as well.  It is important that people understand how to differentiate between real, sensationalized, and false news in both their day to day lives and their academic lives.  At this workshop we will consider the problem of fake and sensationalized news inside and outside of science.  The workshop aims to equip participants with an understanding of how to recognize, avoid, and combat fake news and false science.
