About the Course

In this highly digitalized world, critical media and information literacy is required for all, not to mention educators and youths. This 3-week course aims to enhance the learners’ competencies on Media and Information Literacy (MIL) with introduction to the current information and learning environments, required competencies to cope with the changing environments, theories on MIL, management of media contents, and ethical issues and engagement with media to promote global citizenship.


The course is composed of the following three sessions. Each session provides a lecture and additional learning materials followed by forum discussion. To effectively assist learners’ understanding and learning progress, a set of quizzes is offered per session. Run in a self-paced mood, the course is open throughout the year. Upon the successful completion of the course, a certificate is provided!
