MEDIA AND INFORMATION LITERACY WEEK (UNIJOS) 24th to 25TH OCTOBER, 2019

GLOBAL THEME: Media and Information Literate Citizens: Informed, Engaged, Empowered

UNIJOS THEME: Empowering and Engaging Students on Media and Information Literacy

DESCRIPTION: The edition of this year will continue to focus on students in the digital age. MIL provides students with key competencies for life-long learning, work, and in all aspects of life. Students equipped with MIL competencies are informed, engaged and empowered. They are able to understand the dangers of disinformation, as well as the spiral of hatred and exclusion. When intercultural and inter-religious dialogue is promoted through free, independent and pluralistic media and information systems, the awareness of diversities can enrich our notion of the world around us, and improve our understanding of others and ourselves. Empowering students, with MIL competencies, lets more voices to be heard, and thus enables digital inclusion and enhanced opportunities.

of MIL UniJos week.
II. A live broadcast debate by selected secondary schools in ICE FM
III. An essay competition among students of UniJos on Media and Information Literacy.
