Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2017

More Info: Traditionally the dominant perspective of the relationship between education and the media has largely been based on a simple, uni-directional model of the media having negative effects on academic achievement. This seminar will explore alternative ways of viewing this relationship and their implications for policy and research.
