DCMF Media Literacy train the teachers workshop
Doha Centre for Media Freedom trains the teachers
DCMF is organising a workshop for teachers on Media Literacy to take place from October 16-18.
The workshop will start from 9am to 2pm at the Grand Heritage Hotel in Doha, Qatar and will provide an insight into Media Literacy to teachers.
The Doha Centre chose the 2011 UNESCO publication “Media and Information Literacy: Curriculum for Teachers” as the workshops’ reference book. The programme will also offers its own literature, namely two bilingual booklets; “School News: Students Handbook” and “School News: Manual for Teachers & Coaches” to guide participants throughout the stages of the Media Literacy programme.
The aim of this 3 days workshop is to give to the teachers the methodology and tools to teach Media Literacy to their students.
78 teachers from 42 schools will be attending the workshop along with Media Coordinators, Media Practitioners and NGO’s.
