A quiet week on campus, but we have a few notes and tweets to catch up on:
iSchoolers in the News
Assistant Professor Emma Spiro teamed up with Kate Starbird, an HCDE assistant professor and adjunct at the iSchool, on a piece for The Huffington Post about the spread of fake news. They explore various ways to identify and deal with online misinformation.
Associate Professor Joe Janes’ latest “Documents That Changed the World” podcast was the subject of a write-up in UW Today. Janes investigated the 5 percent threshold for statistical significance and the man who arrived at that figure, Sir Ronald Fisher.
