Are all sources created equal?

A QEP Workshop

Information Timeline Graphic

Information timeline - information creation cycle

  • Information is produced immediately after an even occurs.
  • It typically starts on social media and in the news.
  • As time passes, facts are verified and more information is understood about the event.
  • Over time, more analysis of what happened, why, and the context of the event are shared through different types of sources.

The type of information needed will depend on the project and the class.
