Micro-learning course in critical visual media literacy and fluency

The Micro-learning course in critical visual media literacy and fluency is a 50-hours online course in English, Greece and Italian which will be piloted with 150 participants in October 2023. 


The course aims at providing participants with a deep understanding of the significance of images in present societies. Through a series of four modules, learners will develop the ability to detect images and recognize stereotypes in visual artefacts. They will also learn to navigate the visual landscape, discerning the credibility of the pictures they come across in their daily lives. By cultivating these essential competencies in contemporary society, participants will be better equipped to approach the constant stream of images they encounter in all aspects of their lives with a more critical and informed mindset. This applies to various contexts, from educational to leisure activities, as well as in the search for reliable visual information.
