How do you locate information? Do you favour print or online sources or both? How do you evaluate your sources of information?

How they decide what to include in the news and what to discard? How they instil cultural values and ideologies? How is print media different from broadcast media? Why should broadcast media be regulated?
  • Communication is mainly a game of influence. Can you read between the lines and across images to go beyond the surface level and decipher hidden messages? Can you detect intentions to manipulation and mis/disinformation?

V. Analytical and Practical Skills

  • The media are powerful because they produce contents prepared by professional communicators, with carefully-shaped messages, well-calculated goals, addressed to large and well-targeted audiences. This huge effort targeting you should heighten your intellectual curiosity and probing approach. Do you know that you never get the whole picture and the full story and that the world is mediated to us through the lenses of media and information professionals? Do you ask questions concerning the producer of the message, the institution to which they belong, the funding party/parties, from whose perspective the story is told, what is cut from the story, who benefits from the coverage and whose voice is lost in the crowd? Do you pay attention to the time, context, and framing of information? Do you know that you can equally exert power on the media and have impact on their quality if you are active and responsible users of media?
  • Do you pay attention to message appeals: Does the message address the intellect or emotions of audiences? Does it create fear and anxiety or is it based on logic and evidence? Does it respect citizens or does it mock their intelligence and treat them as "empty vessels"?
  • Do you check the sidedness of information: whether the message is one-sided or double-sided? Do you know that messages presenting only one perspective and ignoring other perspectives should be considered with caution and double/multi-sided messages are a sign of fairness? Do you know the serious implications of dogmatism and that you, as students, must guard against this tendency which jeopardizes democracy and the basic human rights, including the right to be different and to have different views, beliefs, and attitudes?
  • Can you analyze critically media and information arguments and decipher communication strategies; evaluate the pertinence, reliability, and quality of media and information content; store and document the relevant information; synthesize this information and use it effectively and ethically; and make this whole process both enjoyable and rewarding for academic achievement, personality development, social interaction, active citizenship, and professional fulfilment?

 

 

              

 

   NO

 

 

   YES
