Organisation and examination

Teaching in the first semester, review in January

Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

The course will address the following points: the distinction between media literacy and education by the media; analysis of media-related messages (language used, presentation, typologies, technology, audiences, producers); use of the media in class.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

Because the media shapes public opinion, has an impact on our view of the world and has a role to play in the construction of identity, teachers have to contribute, regardless of their subjects, to the education of responsible citizens and active spectators who are aware of the construction process of media-related messages.
The course will not, however, present a series of "pedagogical recipes" applicable wholesale to higher secondary education. Rather, it will set out the possible paths which can stimulate a desire to learn about and with the media.

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning)

The course will be divided into 5 sessions, each addressing a particular type of media. Most theoretical notions will be developed through the analysis of various documents requiring students' active participation. Attendance in class is therefore highly recommended.
The class will take place on Wednesdays from 6pm to 8:30pm in the GOTHOT Room (Place du 20 Août, Building A1).

Recommended or required readings

- The ppt presentations will be available online (MyULg) after each session.
- The day after each session, a general plan of the session will be available online (MyULg). 

Assessment methods and criteria

Students are assessed on their knowledge of the key notions and concepts presented in class, and their ability to use them in order to develop a critical analysis of a media document - i.e. on their ability to deconstruct the media document so as to understand its mechanisms (production, diffusion, reception).
The 2 hours written exam (MCQ) will take place in January 2018.
