Media Literacy in the University Curriculum

Presented by: Jessica Roberts, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Presented at: 5th International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education
Date of Session: March 17, 2012

Session Description: The goal of this round-table is to develop a conceptual model of how (social) media literacy education can be taught at each stage of a student’s academic career to build a more well-rounded student and global citizen. This workshop will share how a conceptual model which combines conflict resolution education and peace education can enhance understanding of the media and postmodern consumption of ideas and media.
