This session summarises top recommendations from a year-long international research project. Tune in to discover: (1) who is most vulnerable to believing misinformation; (2) why members of the public sometimes actively share misinformation; (3) what are the most, and least effective strategies of communicating fact checks online; and (4) what fact checkers can do to foster a culture of accuracy in the long-term.

Discover the findings, then join the Q+A to discuss how we can all implement them.

This session, like the briefings behind it, draws together existing peer reviewed academic research from the fields of psychology, anthropology, and communication studies, and large scale survey research from non-partisan organisations.

All times are displayed in 24 hours format and based on EDT / GMT-4
