The Faculty of Political Science and Journalism at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, Poland has launched the first News Literacy Center in Europe and the second outside the United States. The Center will be lead by the Dean of the Facutly, Prof. Tadeusz Wallas and will serve as a clearing house for materials and knowledge about news literacy for Poland, Eastern Europe, the Caucusus, and Central Asia. This summer it will conduct the first News Literacy Summer Institute for academics from Poland and other countries in the region.
In the fall of 2014, following their training at the Stony Brook International News Literacy Summer Institute, three AMU faculty members launched a course in News Literacy for undergraduate. Using innovative marketing techniques (see video) Rafal Wisniewski, Eliza Kania and Agnieszka Filipiak attracted more students than could be accommodated. The goal is to make the course mandatory for all journalism students in the future.
Wisneiewski, Kania, and Filipiak have run Summer Institutes in Poznan, Poland.
