Visual Media Literacy education: Guidelines and Recommendations available. Endorse them!


The Guidelines and Recommendations for Visual Media Literacy education, produced in the framework of the CLIP project, are out!

The document is designed to support educators and institutions at all levels in delivering an effective and holistic Visual Media Literacy course. The guidelines offer valuable insights for each phase of course delivery, ensuring a well-rounded educational approach.

The development of the Guidelines and Recommendations was a collaborative effort, shaped by key outcomes such as a Report on Visual Media Literacy in European Higher Education and a Micro-Learning Course on Critical Visual Media Literacy and Fluency and enriched by the expertise of numerous professionals consulted throughout the project’s duration and on the occasion of the validation workshop that took place in Brussels on March 21, 2024, and online on March 28, 2024.

The Guidelines and Recommendations are available in English, Italian, and Greek.

If you would like to support this initiative, we invite you to endorse the Guidelines and Recommendations and, if relevant, consider integrating them into your educational work. The endorsement form is available at this page.
