Get ready for media literacy week

Get ready for media literacy week

Event Information

Media Literacy Week is coming soon, from 24 to 31 October, and there are plenty of ways that all libraries can get involved.

In a world where misinformation and disinformation are quickly becoming a global issue, the library and information profession can play a vital role in guiding its community in evaluating media and identifying sources. Media Literacy Week is an opportunity to highlight the valuable skills that library and information professionals can utilise to support media literacy, and build a stronger awareness in their community.

This half-hour session for the library and information sector will provide an overview of media literacy for libraries and explain how libraries can get involved in this campaign. It will also feature a special presentation from librarian Glenn Harper, describing his ‘fake news’ learning program in public libraries.

Registration is free, but places are limited.
