FuJo to partner in TeaMLit, a new project looking at teacher education in media literacy

15 September 2022

FuJo is delighted to announce it’s involvement in TeaMLit, a new project
which aims to educate teachers on media literacy. FuJo will primarily carry out
a thorough mapping, framing and analysis of what is currently available in
terms of initial and continuing professional development of teachers in media
and information literacy. Results of this research will be shared with partners
and used to inform and drive forward the other activities, which
include the launch the TeaMLit network, a community of interest for both
experienced and inexperienced teacher educators and trainers; the production of
online training modules to be used in teacher training activities; and the
creation of a repository of existing media literacy resources used to support
teacher education.

A statement published on Media and Learning explains

“TeaMLit aims to establish a value added and sustainable
network providing guidance, resources and support for European teacher
educators and trainers in MIL and in so doing, to directly advance students’
abilities to tackle disinformation. TeaMLit partners will gather and share
knowledge, pilot promising approaches, develop training materials and conduct a
large scale multiplier campaign”

The project will target teacher educators and trainers already involved
with media literacy education, institutions, universities, professional bodies
and others responsible for initial and in-service teacher education and
training, as well as organisations working in the fight against disinformation,
including EDMO and the EDMO national hubs. 

As well as FuJo, TeaMLit involves the following partners: The Media & Learning Association; Association for Communication and Media Culture (Croatia); Heidelberg School of Education (Germany); Mediawijs (Belgium); and the Finnish Society on Media Education (Finland) as well as a host of supporting partners
