Fake news and alternative facts are so much a part of our daily information consumption that it's often hard to tell what's real and what's not. This course will provide you with the tools you need to identify fact from fiction and deal with the deluge of information and our gut reaction to it. In short, this course will help you find healthy ways to consume information so that it does not consume you!
