The 2019 NMRLC is an immersive two-day gathering designed to inspire, challenge, and equip educators, librarians, academics, researchers, and community media workers about the power and potential of media literacy.
We’ll share how we come to know our worlds through media and how media literacy processes help us to bring new voices to the stories that surround us. Come share in the excitement of the newest and most innovative ideas in media literacy practice and awaken your appreciation of the promise of media for learning and life.
