EDMO Online Training: “Effective Media Literacy Methods and Approaches: Hits & Misses”

05 June 2024 14:00 - 15:30 CET

Join our upcoming session to explore a variety of different approaches that have worked – and in some cases – that haven’t!  Hear from speakers who have led media literacy initiatives aimed at specific target groups including teachers, working professionals and seniors. While there is clearly no one type of approach to media literacy that can work for everyone, there is much to learn from seasoned media literacy experts sharing their experience with specific target groups. Discover for yourself proven methods and strategies that seem to have the most impact and get the inside track on why some approaches simply have not delivered despite their promise. This session will provide valuable insights into the most effective techniques and approaches to delivering media education and training in media literacy that works.
