CcaM researchers present at Dutch symposium for media literacy


MediaLiter 1The first Dutch Scientific Symposium for Media Literacy is organized by the National Academy for Media and Society, and hosts speakers from several Dutch and Flemish universities - including several current and former CcaM researchers.

All speakers are members of the scientific council of the National Media Passport project and experts on media literacy themes. They will present their most recent insights on current socially relevant themes. CcaM is proud to note that four of these speakers are current or former CcaM colleagues!

Dr. Sindy Sumter will discuss her work on digital media and the social-emotional development of youth. Winneke van der Schuur talks about how media-multitasking affects children and adolescents.  Dr. Dian de Vries answers the question how social media affect teens’ self- and body image. And Dr. Esther Rozendaal will discuss media empowerment, or how media education should be shaped to make youth more aware of their own media use. 

Other speakers featured in the program are Liselot Hudders (Ghent University), dr. Mariska Kleemans (Radboud University Nijmegen), dr. Natascha Notten (Radboud University Nijmegen), and Janneke Schilder (Tilburg University).
