Media Literacy in Europe: Country Approaches

After our webinar series on the Nordic media literacy, we will now move on to non-Nordic European perspectives. In the webinar series “Media Literacy in Europe: Country Approaches” we will make a walk-through in Europe, gaining new insights into their media and information literacy (MIL) landscapes. Taking a look at seven countries altogether, we intend to know how MIL policies are turned into research and practice. NordMedia Network and the Media & Learning Association warmly welcome you to join these webinars for benchmarking, new ideas and inspiration!
