Wednesday Webinar on Teacher Education in Digital Media Literacy (Part 3)

Our Autumn 23′ Wednesday Webinar series is dedicated to Teacher Education in Digital Media Literacy and organised as part of the TeaMLit project (providing guidance, resources and support for teacher trainers in Europe). These events focus on the experiences of media literacy practionners and experts and provide opportunities to share best practices, knowledge and quality resources.

How do you ensure that teachers teach media literacy? That is the main question of the TeaMLit project. In this webinar TeaMLit’s Resources: Equipping Teacher Trainers with Inspiring Practices; we delved into the TeaMLit repository showcasing inspiring practices in teacher training in media literacy. Moreover, the project team introduced its latest output: a first glimpse at the program of our online training modules that will give guidance for teachers and teachers-to-be to teach media literacy.
