Semel HCI 2021 Media Literacy Summit

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a parallel pandemic of mis- and dis-information which has been shown to have real and concerning health effects. Through convening a vast network of UCLA and invited interdisciplinary experts and leaders, Semel HCI aims to support rich and productive conversations on promoting information literacy. At this Summit, we we will build on the current media literacy work at UCLA, help map out concrete steps to address information literacy, and improve health and well-being at UCLA and beyond.
