The course consists in two practical workshops delivered in two half days (from 9h00 to 13h00):

The first day, during the EU Fact Checking workshop, participants will analyse the current situation regarding fake news as well as identify reliable sources to find EU Information & News, EU Legislation and EU Policies.
The second day, during the EU Fact Finding workshop, participants will expand their skills, going deeper into legal texts and learning how to quickly and effectively find relevant information on the current Decision Making Process, EU institutions and key EU staff, EU History, EU Glossaries and Terminology, EU Statistics, EU Programmes and Tenders, and EU Dialogue with Civil society and Business.

More information:

  • The workshop has a practical approach. Participants are continuously putting into practice what the lecturer is explaining, thanks to the use of individual computers.
  • Individual/ group problem solving is encouraged during the implementation of the modules and participants can define thematic searches on the spot.

Participants are asked to fill in a questionnaire before their participation to the course to guarantee that their main interests and difficulties when using EU websites will be addressed.
