The TeaMLit Network brings together teacher educators who work in media literacy in either pre-service teacher training in colleges, or in-service teacher training (Continuing professional development) settings. Members of this Network will share experience, know-how, and resources as well as to identify opportunities for collaboration. It will also support newcomers interested in providing media literacy training and educational opportunities to teachers at all levels of education. The Network will accomplish this by setting up communications channels, online meetings, workshops, managed repositories, and other means to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and resources.

As a member you will be invited to participate in online meetings every three months for the next 18 months (6 sessions) and to exchange your education practice with colleagues from other countries in Europe. At the same time, we will set up a closed and moderated mail-list for all network members to facilitate communication.

In the network you will:

  • collaborate with the TeaMLit project team in identifying a variety of different practice scenarios and participate in choosing the best ones on the European level.
  • help us identify gaps in currently available education and training resources used in teacher education and training in media and information literacy
