Media Wise: Empowering Responsible Religious Leadership in the Digital Age (Pilot Curriculum)
It is critical that religious leaders are able to critically analyse news media content, understand risks and opportunities associated with the Internet and become responsible and informed consumers and transmitters of information and opinion. The pilot curriculum, developed in cooperation with UNESCO, empowers religious leaders to navigate the news media and the Internet with confidence and more capably address misinformation or bias about their own or other religious communities and beliefs. The curriculum in this pilot form was tested during KAICIID’s Dialogue Days in November. Feedback received will be used to improve the curriculum for release in 2015.
