In autumn 2020, Nordicom and the Swedish Media Council will co-organize a series of webinars addressing media and information literacy (MIL) in the Nordic countries: Media Education in the Nordic Countries: Lessons Learned from the Neighbours.
The Nordic countries often appear as very similar, but when it comes to our approaches to MIL, Sweden’s neighbouring countries have adopted different approaches to enhancing the citizens’ knowledge, skills and competencies related to media. Even if the purposes of media education may be quite similar, there are different core concepts in policies and practices, with a different focus on the aspects of media literacy. In this series of three 45-minutes webinars, we will take a look at some topical MIL issues in Finland, Denmark and Norway.
Dates: September 23, September 30 and October 7 (weeks 39, 40 and 41)
Registration: will open in August
Venue: Zoom, a link will be sent to registered participants
