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.

    The course on Critical Media Literacy provides me with a valuable introduction to the concept of media literacy and its significance in our contemporary society. The course covers a wide range of topics, including media representation, propaganda, Conspiracy theory and the impact of social media on our perceptions of reality. The course also emphasizes the importance of critical thinking skills and provides practical tools and strategies for analyzing and evaluating media messages.
