DRIVING QUESTION

How can I adjust the pedagogy of teaching media literacy to inspire student discussions on global issues, and their critical evaluation of media content?

COURSE OVERVIEW

By the end of this course, you will obtain novel approaches in teaching media literacy to young people, enhanced with inventive tools to set up classroom media centre. You will feel empowered to address issues of fake news, media bias, information overload, and critically assess media landscape within your youth network. It enables you to motivate youth to “take control” of the media they consume and become active creators of the media content.  Young people you work with will be inspired by media in action, and practical approaches to media literacy.
