Organisation and examination :

Units courses prerequisite and corequisite :
Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

http://www.ulg.ac.be/cms/c_3317373/fr/education-aux-medias
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 the subject matter they are teaching, to creating responsible citizens, active spectators who are conscious of the process of how media-related messages are constructed; capable of distinguishing the mechanisms of representation and of defining the challenges they pose.
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 and how to teach them using a methodology constructed by teachers themselves and in line with their own objectives and interests.
Prerequisite knowledge and skills :
Planned learning activities and teaching methods :
Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning) :
The course will be divided into 6 sessions, each addressing a particular type of media. Most theoretical ideas will be developed from the analysis of media documents requiring students' active participation. Attendance in class is therefore highly recommended.
The class will take place on Wednesdays from 6pm to 8pm 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 2016.
Work placement(s) :
Organizational remarks :
Students are requested to regularly consult the Cifen website (www.cifen.ulg.ac.be) as well as the notice boards (Place du 20 Août, Building A1, Second floor) for any additional information given during the year.
