Publication of Media Literacy Standards and Best Practices draft checklist: seeking feedback

EDMO’s Working Group on Media Literacy Standards and Best Practices is delighted to share its draft checklist on media literacy standards and best practices, and to invite feedback. The list has been developed by the Working Group with input from the EDMO Hubs and other practitioners and experts during a consultation session in December 2023.

The goal of the Working Group is to raise media literacy levels across Europe by developing quality standards and best practices that new and existing practitioners can consult to increase the effectiveness of their projects. This is crucial to EDMO’s wider mission, as raising media literacy levels increases the public’s resilience to online mis- and disinformation.

The quality standards and guidelines produced are intended primarily as a guidance and self-assessment tool for use by media literacy providers. In addition, they could be used by tech companies who have signed up to the Code of Practice on Disinformation in their efforts to address Commitment 17, and could be referred to by EDMO and others in analysing signatories’ reports.

The Working Group is keen to seek feedback from a wide range of practitioners, researchers, public bodies and other experts and therefore invites you to read the draft checklist and submit responses to the following questions.

  1. Do you agree with these guidelines – is there anything missing, or are there some you think should be removed?
  2. Which do you think are the most important?
  3. Which of these do you think might be most difficult to follow?
  4. Can you provide suggestions of particular initiatives that exemplify one or more of the standards? If so, please provide a link, the particular standard(s) it embodies and a brief explanation of why it is a particularly pertinent example.
  5. Are there any further suggestions you would like to contribute?

Please respond via email to [email protected] with the subject line ‘Standards feedback.’ The deadline for feedback is 17 April.
