The GEA researcher will examine the new tools to avoid the problem of misinformation
The results of the research project FACCTMedia, Instruments of accountability in the face of disinformation: Impact of fact-checking platforms as accountability tools and curricular proposal, will be presented on 13 December at the Faculty of Communication Sciences, Room 8.
The FACCTMedia project, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation (PID2019- 106367GB-I00 /AEI/10.13039/501100011033), proposes to examine how accountability tools are evolving and adapting to address the problem of misinformation and to identify which accountability mechanisms have been recently created for this purpose. Among other tasks, this project aims to deepen the understanding of innovative verification methodologies, editorial criteria and publication strategies being carried out by the media, academia and independent information verification platforms at the Spanish and international level. This detailed knowledge will serve as a starting point to formulate a methodological and curricular proposal that will allow the introduction of news verification modules in Spanish universities.
A diploma of participation will be awarded, registration here.
