Silliman University (SU), in cooperation with the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC) will conduct a training-workshop for Senior High School (SHS) Media and Information Literacy (MIL) teachers this coming Jan. 30 to 31.
The event entitled News Literacy Training for Senior High School Media and Information Literacy Teachers aims to train teachers “on teaching/facilitating news literacy sessions and producing lesson plans and developing teaching-learning materials on news literacy.”
It seeks to develop innovative methods of teaching the subject, including the use of multimedia or classroom activities.
It is part of the nationwide project of the AIJC, Developing Champion Teachers in News Literacy done in partnership with Google News Initiative, Love Frankie and the University of Hong Kong.
Previously, the AIJC has conducted the training in Iligan City on Jan. 16 to 17, and will also hold sessions in Cebu, Dumaguete, Pampanga, Cagayan de Oro, Metro Manila and Cavite.
MIL, also known as MEDIL in SU, is a core subject taken by SHS students.
According to the Department of Education, it “introduces the learners to basic understanding of media and information as channels of communication and tools for the development of individuals and societies. It aims to develop students to be creative and critical thinkers as well as responsible users and competent producers of media and information.”
