Experts from George Mason University’s School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution will be in Reston next week to help interested citizens learn how to better navigate the muddied waters of the 24-hour news cycle.
Reston Regional Library (11925 Bowman Towne Drive) will host “Hot Topics: News Blues and How to Defuse” from 7-8:30 p.m. Monday. During the program, representatives of the GMU S-CAR, along with Fairfax County Public Library employees, will provide an interactive workshop about media literacy and dialogue skills. They will aim to help attendees “learn tips for navigating through the overwhelming array of news sources” and “practice using respectful and positive communication techniques when discussing hot button issues.”
The free event is geared toward adults.
