The Centre for Excellence in Media Practice are researching media literacy for resilience to fake news, funded by a grant from the US Embassy in London. Leading media literacy researchers from the US and UK will come together in London on 15-16 March with teachers, librarians, journalists, digital media producers and young people to tackle disinformation with media literacy.
At the London event, these key stakeholders in this crucial societal issue will listen to young people and share perspectives, working to a collective aim – a practical strategy for harnessing media literacy to develop young people’s resilience to ‘fake news’, with a focus on case studies from both the UK and the US.
A series of interactive workshops will culminate in the research team capturing the raw material for an online, open access toolkit for media literacy resilience.
OPEN, PUBLIC EVENT: FRIDAY MARCH 15th 2019
