Communicating Media and Information Literacy Research to Wider Audiences: From Research to Policy and Impact
Media and Information Literacy Event Series at the 3rd World Higher Education Conference
The research on media and information literacy (MIL) forms an area of knowledge that touches upon the lives of children, parents, teachers, and media practitioners, among many others. Insights that are important for policy development are also generated within research communities. There is thus a major need to strengthen the reach of the MIL research. The research findings and insights must reach key stakeholders outside academia to exert a long-term social impact and contribute to the futures of higher education and further promote international cooperation to enhance synergies—concept and themes put under spotlight of the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2022. Creating public engagement and conversations around important MIL recommendations is essential. The event will also include a presentation of the MILID Yearbook 2021.
