How does confirmation bias affect our view of the world? How does motivated reasoning shape the way we interpret and respond to evidence presented in news and opinion pieces? Join us to explore proven strategies to counter our biases when surfing online or conducting research and then practice using these strategies to investigate a real-life issue. CSUN campus Community is invited.
