In partnership with the School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC) at the University of Oregon, First Draft will be hosting an immersive event including a state-of-the-art live simulation training that is designed to help journalists mitigate the threat disinformation poses.

Through this live simulation, presentations, and masterclasses you will build core competencies in identifying disinformation online and develop protocols for responding to information emergencies by building institutional capacity and provide tools and resources for navigating the complexities of information disorder online.

Due to space limitations, anyone interested in attending is invited to apply to participate in this free event. Preference will be given to journalists currently employed by a newsroom.

Other interested parties (such as students and faculty) are encouraged to apply as well and give us a reason for your interest, but please note: by applying you are not guaranteed a spot. A member of staff will reach out to confirm your attendance. We thank all applicants for their interest.
