English Language Fellows Nathan William Meyer (Moldova) and Joey Fordyce (Ukraine) led a dynamic two-day training session on Media Literacy in Eastern Europe. The twelve participants and eight guest ACCESS teachers discussed best practices and procedures for facilitating media literacy MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) throughout Ukraine.

These tech-enabled sessions merged theory and interactive practices with the context of real-world current events, so that participants could understand how to become effective, critical-thinking MOOC leaders in their communities.  One attendee told Nathan “I learned a great deal about the credibility of sources, fake news, [and] alternative facts, and I will now read the news more carefully.”
