Diversity and inclusion project LEMON goes live

By Sally Galiana

For the last two years, partners in five European countries (Spain, Germany, Ireland, Belgium, Austria) have worked together to create a new media literacy e-learning resource.

The Learning Ethical Media Online (LEMON) course aims to increase media content creators’ awareness of inclusion diversity in media creation.

Available in 3 languages: Spanish, German and English, the course is self-taught and self-assessed by the participants once they have registered and enrolled.

The LEMON course is divided into three modules, preceded by an Introductory element, which explains how to navigate the course and includes an initial self-assessment of the areas covered in the course. The three modules are:

  • Module 1: Words Matter. This module examines the challenges to inclusion and diversity in the use of language.
  • Module 2: Alternative Perspectives. This module explores how our values and worldview create blindspots in our understanding of inclusion and diversity.
  • Module 3: How to deal with Disinformation. This module provides a series of tools to recognise and deal with misinformation and disinformation.

The course ends with a final self-assessment that will help the participant track their increased awareness and knowledge in the areas covered in the Modules.

Finally, there is a list of sources and resources that includes links to the materials used in the course as well as further reading and links to other websites that offer additional information related to inclusion and diversity.

The course requires registration (so progression can be saved by Moodle, so when leaving the site it is possible return to the point it was left) and enrolment (so participants can benefit of the course full content and self-assessment element).

Note for trainers:

Though the course has been designed as a stand-alone, asynchronous course, it can also be integrated in blended training or as a resource to be used during face-to-face training, by using the specific activities/modules during trainer-led sessions.

If you are a trainer, we invite you to become familiar with the content by completing the course yourself, as it would help you to design and decide how to deliver your own training. If you would like some advice or further information, please, contact Sally Galiana

This project was co-funded by Erasmus + through Léargas

The course is available online.
