Preparing students for life, work, and citizenship requires a global perspective 


Medialogues on Propaganda is a year-long Professional Learning Community or German and American educators and teacher educators, developed by Renee Hobbs (University of Rhode Island USA) and Silke Grafe (University of Würzburg, Germany).


We seek to bring a group of educators together for a regular series of dialogues to explore the complex changes underway in our post-pandemic reality, as we integrate digital learning back into schools. We seek to implement learning experiences that advance media literacy competencies for the learners we support. You will benefit from participating in this program if:
