This last week I was in Los Angeles to begin the first Institute of Media Literacy taught by Sr Rose Pacatte, fsp and a few invited presenters fluent in Media studies. There were six of us Daughters of St Paul present for the week and a half. Our objective? To obtain a certificate as Master/teachers in Media Literacy and to design six presentations for Catholic School students and teachers on this theme. It was a lot of work and a lot of films. I would recommend the course to everyone - but if you can't make the course come to the Cooperator Conference in Princeton, NJ this November 1, 2 and 3rd for a "taste of Media Lit" or we could call it "Media Lit Lite" since it is an introduction that will have you signing up for web classes in no time.
