Intercultural and Media Literacy: Global Tendencies in Metacontent of Teacher Education in Latvia
Belousa, Inga; Stakle, Alnis
Discourse and Communication for Sustainable Education, v1 n1 p109-132 Jan 2010
Under the influence of processes of globalisation, higher education in the countries of Europe, including Latvia, has been reshaped, restructured, re-evaluated and reoriented towards the establishment of a European higher education area. New issues have emerged at both the content and metacontent level, the most significant of which are intercultural and media literacy matters. Considering the tendencies of globalisation, this article focuses on the issues of intercultural and media literacy as a metacontent of teacher education. The article introduces the teachers' view and experience of intercultural and media education in Latvia and frames several suggestions to implement intercultural and media literacy in the teacher education curriculum.
