On Media Literacy: Navigating global information flows
Please join us for our 4th webinar this fall.
November 15th at 3 – 4 PM, Oslo/Paris/Berlin time
Critical media literacy concerns our ability to navigate increasingly complex information flows. We talk of ‘polarization’, ‘fake news’, ‘misinformation’, ‘propaganda’ and much more, but how does all this relate to education as a global challenge, if not to say learning in the context of sustainable communication?
