Media literacy project in Turiba University
Each year, the International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX) expands its collaboration with various universities to promote media literacy around the world. Up until now the partners from Latvia were only state educational institutions, but in year 2022 Turiba University was selected as a cooperation partner in the promotion of media literacy. Within the framework of the project, Turiba promotes and improves the understanding of media literacy not only among students, but also in the Latvian society as a whole.
In frame of this project Turiba is implementing different activities to promote media literacy and develops tools and materials for students and teachers. There will be research within the framework of national media literacy, a series of podcasts created in Turiba DigiCom laboratory, different informative materials, articles of expert opinions, a round table discussion “Media Literacy in Latvia” and a summer school. The content created during the project will be compiled on a special website dedicated to media literacy issues, while the results of the media literacy research will be presented at the International Scientific Conference organized by the university next year.
In order for young people to be able to notify false information and become resistant to its impact in today's media environment, all students of Turiba University will be offered a comprehensive and practical study course during the project, acquiring knowledge and skills in media literacy. Students will also practice media literacy in a variety of extracurricular activities, such as filming podcasts and organizing events.
