Course summary

Congratulations! You’ve completed the course.

Thank you for joining us over the last three weeks to investigate the truth behind food headlines. You’ve explored the perspectives and communication processes of both science and the media, and what this means to you; the reader.

You’ve explored the hierarchy of evidence for different studies, the techniques journalist use to attract our attention, the credibility of sources and how our own biases influence how we understand food-related news.

We hope that this course has equipped you with the tools to decide whether or not you trust a news article in the future.

If you’d like to keep up to date with the topics we’ve been discussing, please take a look at EIT Food News and updates. Or if you’re looking to continue your learning journey online, you can view some of the other courses EIT produce on FutureLearn.

Before you leave, please tell us about your experience of the course. What was your favourite topic? What would you like to see more of in EIT Food courses? Your feedback will be very helpful in developing future runs and new courses.

If you’ve enjoyed this EIT Food course, you may like to join the next upcoming course ‘Innovation in Arable Farming: Technologies for Sustainable Farming Systems’ which starts on 19 October. You can see the full list of EIT Food courses here.

We wish you the very best in whatever you decide to do next!

Thank you!
