In these uncertain times, often made more fraught through the proliferation of misinformation and the purposeful deployment of disinformation, it is more important than ever to foster understanding of diverse perspectives both domestically and from across the globe. What are the differences between misinformation and disinformation? How do they each operate in conflict environments? The University of Chicago Educator Outreach Program, in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, is excited to announce a four-part, educator professional development series The Global Rise of Disinformation in Times of Conflict, from June 20-23 (virtual) and on June 28 (in-person).
