Design and test new misinformation warnings

Building on results from pilot studies, an interdisciplinary problem-solving task force is ready to adopt more robust measurements to further understand how people perceive and react to misinformation warnings.

A group of faculty members and students with expertise in interactive design, human-computer interactions, cybersecurity, and media literacy seek seed funding to design and test misinformation warning mechanisms. Ultimately this work aims to 1) improve the misinformation mitigation solutions to help social media users with low media literacy and 2) develop educational materials to enhance misinformation awareness and media literacy among citizens.
