Population Health Initiative grant to build research agenda for a gamified approach to health misinformation

This project aims to develop a research agenda for a gamified approach to building resilience to health misinformation. Project activities include a literature review, interviews with health experts, and co-design sessions. With conventional information literacy approaches for helping people detect and resist misinformation proving inadequate, escape rooms offer an immersive learning experience to focus on the cognitive biases, emotional triggers and other affective attributes that make misinformation so pernicious. This short term Tier 1 grant will enable a group of faculty and postdoctoral scholars to merge their disciplinary expertise and build the foundation for future work.
