Democracy Requires Information: Fostering Media Literacy for Civic Engagement in College

Civic Engagement Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement Mid-Level New Professional
Eric M. Feldman

Between the proliferation of social media and the 24-hour news cycle, college students are incessantly bombarded with information. The purpose of this session is to model educational strategies to enhance students’ media literacy, so they become less susceptible to making snap judgments based on distorted information. These strategies share a focus on engaging diverse groups in deliberative discussion. Participants will also discuss recent research on where and how students receive and process information with a particular focus on political conversation.
