Media and information literacy (MIL) was recently introduced in the Philippines although it has been the talk of the town since the Grunwald Declaration on media education in 1982. De La Salle University (DLSU) Libraries is an active partner in promoting MIL and decided to support this as part of its information literacy campaign. This project report provides an overview of a seminar-workshop programme on MIL conducted at DLSU Libraries for public school teacher-librarians. The programme is based on a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) publication entitled ‘Pedagogies of Media and Information Literacies’ which has five modules: Understanding media and information literacy; Young people as global media audiences; Media cultures and technologies; How to interpret media; Cooperation and sharing ideas. The project report acknowledges how the participants were able to grasp and understand the MIL values and how they were able to apply these values in their own workplace. Finally, the report shares analyses of the participants’ reviews of the programme.
