Embedding Wellbeing Approaches in EDS Programmes

Principal focus of the project

This project focussed on empowering women (particularly single parents) to take control of their concerns caused by being exposed to fake news.

Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

EDS and Creative Skills tutors facilitated the co-design of developing and embedding misinformation/ disinformation workshops with learners. A series of questions about misinformation was put to learners to respond to in their video diaries, Jamboard and Padlet. Activities included exploring their judgement in the online space; and role playing in the 'Bad News Game' (DROG 2021) putting them in the shoes of someone spreading fake news. The project reported that it was successful in helping to raise confidence in dealing and interacting with misinformation online.
