About the Course

What can be done when online hate speeches spread into the physical world? This closed course is designed for educators who want to teach about Media and Information Literacy. It will focus on the spreading of prejudice and stereotypes online and their consequences offline. The workshop will explain the role played by the Internet and the mechanisms of their diffusion on social networks (trends and patterns of online extremism). Using material found online, this course will allow the participants to experiment hands-on the functioning of Internet, define their own posture, and will give them the tools and recommendations to teach about it.

In particular, students who want to apply for this course should complete the prerequisite course “Critical Media Literacy” in advance.

Course Reviews

  • Abigael Anaza-Mark
    The course on Media and Information Literacy facilitated by Mr Fabrice Tiecher has strengthened my quest to help learners improve upon their online safety skills. I am more empowered to understand what conspiracy theories are and how to identify them. I find it critical as the general election in my country is fast approaching with opposing parties prone to propagating fake noews about themselves.

    I also loved the group case we had to work on and I learnt a lot from the live sessions on Zoom.
  • Dr. Wyclife Ong'eta
    As an educator and peace practitioner I find this course helpful especially how modern technology could be used to advance peace or to fuel conflicts. Definitely this skills I will share with my team to get more enlightened and build the society resilient against hate speech and violent extremism.
  • Thinley Wangchuk
    The course is really educative and informative and the resources and session cover a wide range of concepts. It imparts a sense of critical thinking, reflection, and responsiveness. It boosts confidence and curative measure while using social media, digital footprints, and the level conducive situations. The session takes to the reality of social media usage, online hate speeches to the physical chaos. As a teacher, I felt I am more equipped to orient my students for better usage of social media.
  • Diana Nur Izati
    This course is rich of knowledge and insights. I learned and reflect a lot. It helps me to see wider but also narrowed my focus on what's going on in the media and what information is exactly are they trying to give us implicitly. It makes me be more careful on who to trust while searching for and giving in information online. And i would find a way to implement some of the materials to my teaching that are suitable for my students.
  • Meridith Merin
    Blessed and grateful to be part of this program. This was an awesome and enlightening experience. I have had an opportunity to understand and learn better about Media & Information and how it builds or destroys one and many. This course was well worth the sacrifice of tackling my schedule. Thanks for the great lectures, lessons, and activities. To Mr. Tiecher, just wanted to thank you for your time and for sharing your expertise on the topics of our classes, I really learned a lot from you. Thanks to all and God bless!
    I've learned the importance of media and information literacy amidst contemporary age. Kudos to our resource speaker for a very comprehensive and timely topic. More power!
  • Maria Teresita Carlos
    I am very glad to be a part of this learning group in the MIL course. I learned a lot of new things from the reading materials, videos, and discussions, really interesting.They are all worth sharing with my university students. The contents amused and aroused my curiosity on the logos ,symbols and conspiracy theories. It made me realize more how sensitive , scary, and violent the situations would be because of very irresponsible social media revelations . I would love to participate in another course that can enhance my perspectives and help me to become knowledgeable in many other things that affect the society. Thank you very much!
  • Anthony Guninita
    Honestly, I would like to attest that my participation in the MIL course, has helped me to become aware and sensitive on how to interact via social media. That is to be in a position to identify the negative risks that might happen from virtual world to a physical life on earth. Apart from that the MIL lecture has enriched me with a vast knowledge on how to deal with conspiracy theories individually, how to identify acts of violent extremism from education perspective.

    All in all, the reading materials and online learning videos have been fruitful and exhaustive in taking me thoroughly to understand the course.

    Thank you.
