Media Literacy in the Baltics

    Project Details

    Description

    The purpose of this project is to train critically reflective practitioners of journalism and media communication through the implementation of a Journalism in the Era of Disinformation (JEDI) course. RSU will develop and implement a standalone university course within the Department of Communication Studies for Bachelors and Masters level students based on a practical approach that aims to increase knowledge of tools for critical thinking and understanding of the creation of messages in the complex and multimodal environments of global digital communication. The course will be mandatory for journalism students and open as an elective to students in all other programs.
    In addition, RSU will work with partners to reach students of other universities and high school students on related seminar series and citizen trainings, including hosting student and high school students’ L2D trainings on university premises.
