Learn Practical Skills to Combat Fake News and Disinformation Today

Our Applied Disinformation Investigations with OSINT course is a world-first course that provides researchers, analysts and practitioners with the practical skills to collect, analyse and take action against disinformation, misinformation and fake news. We teach you tangible skills on how to validate & verify information, how to collect your own data sets on troll bot networks, how to analyse using comprehensive visualisation tools to derive meaning from the information and how to establish a repeatable workflow through methodologies to support your mission.

Our course is designed for people looking to extend their theoretical understanding of information operations by focusing on the applied aspect of how disinformation occurs and the technical skills required to take action. We cover introductory theory and explore actor intent and capabilities, and then pivot to the core learning objectives around real-world skills development in the information environment. We focus on the tactical practitioner to generate counter-disinformation skills and develop a pathway for becoming your own fact checker.

Move beyond theoretical understandings but equipping yourself with the skills to operate effectively in the modern information society and combat disinformation head-on.
