Educator Webinar: Democracy and Disinformation – June 18

Posted by The Pulitzer Center on June 16, 2020

The Pulitzer Center education team and The University of Chicago’s Center for Eastern European and Russian/Eurasian Studies invite educators to join us for a webinar with writer and analyst Nina Jankowicz to explore her reporting project about the influence of disinformation on the 2019 elections in Ukraine. The session will include a presentation and Q&A with Jankowiz, a discussion on leveraging reporting about Eastern Europe to introduce and develop media literacy skills for students, and a presentation on digital resources available to educators and students interested in connecting with reporting on Eastern Europe. Jankowicz’s presentation will highlight the parallels between the elections in Ukraine and the United States outlined in her reporting project, “Ukraine’s 2019 Elections: Disinformation and Divides.” Participants will also examine the counter-measures launched in Ukraine to fight disinformation and its broader impact on democratic discourse.

While this webinar is open to all students, as well as their teachers and guardians, it is recommended for grades 6–12, university students and educators. Educators will receive a 1-hour certificate of attendance upon completion of a short survey.

Date and Time: Thursday, June 18, 7-8 PM
