Misinfo 101 – Iqaluit
September 29, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Canadian Association of Journalists’ misinformation training program provides training for post-secondary students in every province and territory on disinformation and misinformation and a gold-standard research guide all Canadians will be able to use to improve their digital literacy.
This two-hour workshop covers a variety of practical tools for fact-checking and verification, as well as some of the ethical considerations when reporting on misinformation.
The tenth session in the CAJ’s national Misinfo 101 series will be led by APTN’s Kent Driscoll, and will be held at the Nunavut Arctic College on September 29, 2022 from 6:00-8:00 PM ET.
Kent Driscoll is APTN National News’ Iqaluit Video Journalist, and has been reporting from Iqaluit since 2007. As the only APTN employee in Nunavut, he ends up covering everything from office management to breaking news.
