What, exactly, is fake news?
The past year has seen a phenomenal explosion of fake news stories on social media platforms such as Facebook. The term has also become muddied by public officials and politicians – most famously US president Donald Trump – using it to refer to news stories they claim are inaccurate or biased.
Join us for a Q&A-style debate with a panel of experts including our academic staff and media and communication industry professionals. They will tackle questions around the rise of fake news and related issues about the changing nature of media and communication in the digital age.
Hosted by Amanda Collinge – Series Producer Q&A (former reporter at Insight, Dateline, Lateline, Triple J), this is a unique opportunity for secondary school students and staff to have an insiders view of how current professionals see the future of media communication.
Following the showcase, you are invited to tour our exciting new Monash Media Lab, and explore the learning and work environment of the Monash Bachelor of Media and Communication students.
Registration from 6pm.
Light refreshments will be provided.
