Two webinars for Global Media and Information Literacy Week

IFLA - პარ, 25/10/2019 - 16:50

As part of the University of Sheffield Information School celebrations of Global MIL Week 24-31 October, they are holding two webinars, following this year's MIL week theme of "Media and Information Literate Citizens: Informed, Engaged, Empowered". They are both 30 minutes (20 minute presentation + 10 minutes discussion) and open to anyone to attend (using Blackboard Collaborate).

 

 

  • Thursday 24 October 2019, 11am-11.30am UK time (check the time in your country at https://tinyurl.com/globalmila) Dr Pamela McKinney, will talk about research which aimed to discover what data is tracked by people in three communities (parkrunners, people with type 2 diabetes and people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome). She will also discuss why the data was tracked, and the barriers to safe and effective tracking, particularly in relation to information literacy. Respondents were confident in their abilities to understand tracked data, and how this enabled them to achieve their health goals. However, critical to Information literacy is an understanding of the potential re-use and sharing of data by third parties, and respondents demonstrated much less awareness of this. To join Pam's webinar go to https://tinyurl.com/globalmilabb just before the webinar start time. No registration for the webinar required but if you’d like to sign up via Eventbrite and get reminders that it is coming up, go to https://tinyurl.com/globalmilae

 

  • Tuesday 29th October, 4pm-4.30pm UK time (check the time in your country at https://tinyurl.com/globalmilb) Shiela Webber will be talking on "Transformational Media and Information Literacy learning for adult citizens: “this street is full of heroes”. She'll be outlining use of theories from adult education (Transformation Theory and the notion of public pedagogy) and information science (Information Ground theory) to address the challenge of engaging adult citizens critically and transformationally with media and Information Literacy. As the Media and Information Literacy (MIL) concept matures, it is important to expand the MIL focus to the majority of the population who are not in formal education. The title quotation is from a poem by Benjamin Zephaniah (transformed to street art in Sheffield) which inspires us to think of each citizen as a potential MIL hero. To join this webinar go to https://tinyurl.com/globalmilbbb just before the webinar start time.
