Media Literacy for Mid-Career Folks
7. MEDIA LITERACY FOR MID-CAREER FOLKS
Featured Speaker: Renee Hobbs
It's been claimed that older adults were responsible for a significant share of the so-called "fake news" crisis. How might digital skills and knowledge intersect with media literacy competencies for adults as they navigate a rapidly-changing media environment? Learn how mid-career folks manage the more-or-less continual learning curve in their use of information, entertainment, and persuasion.
Parents, teachers, students, educators, school leaders, college faculty, researchers, media professionals, and community activists are invited to join us for a webinar series that explores the development of media literacy competencies across the lifespan, from birth to old age. Each session will include a featured speaker and time for small group discussion and dialogue. Join us for a single session, or participate in the whole series!
