"Modern Trends in Media Literacy for Civil Servants"

Webinar for Civil Service Professionals

Media literacy for civil servants is considered one of the important prerequisites for performing professional tasks and functions. It is also a crucial component of the training system for government employees in the context of ever-increasing requirements for the use of all types of modern media (print, audio, visual, Internet) in state communications, the formation of information culture, and professional activities in the information society.

Today, the public's social demand is for effective government communications, which can be extensively implemented within the "state – media – individual" system. Positioned at the center of this triad, mass media become "independent actors" and largely determine the volume and content of information flows between the state and the public. The media serve as a kind of social space where state communications unfold.

Therefore, there is a need for media education for civil servants, aimed at developing skills to navigate the information space and appropriately create and perceive media materials. Media competence of a civil servant is one of the characteristics of their communicative competence, which is becoming increasingly important.
