Critical Media Literacy: Tackling Information Disorder in the Digital Age

Critical Media Literacy: Tackling Information Disorder in the Digital Age

Bei der ADILT Ringvorlesung begrüßen wir am 20. April 2023 Dr. Stefan Schustereder von der Universität Tübingen zu einem Online-Vortrag:

Living and working in our modern world, we are constantly confronted with news and nuggets of information, including a constant stream of ‚alternative facts‘, propaganda, hoaxes, rumors, satire, and advertising – a situation wherein it becomes more and more difficult to distinguish fact from fiction in order to successfully navigate the digital media world. This lecture will provide an overview of the concepts Media Literacy and Information Disorder, and critically approach the term fake news, while applying methods for recognizing false information. It will provide resources for University students (including prospective teachers), promote ways of reflecting critically examples of digital media culture, and present opportunities for analyzing and interpreting the codes, conventions, and ideologies implicit in our media-saturated lives by revealing information of how to become a more critical consumer of the information we encounter every day.

As a preparation for the lecture, please take 10 to 15 minutes and play a round or two of the following game:
