What is CUMILA?

CUMILA provides a guide to a media and information literacy curriculum for adults.

CUMILA is divided into 6 thematic modules. For each of these modules, there is first a comprehensive handbook that provides an overview of the most important contents and imparts the necessary knowledge.

Based on this, there is a sample syllabus for each module that defines a possible implementation of the topic within the framework of a course. In addition, freely available learning materials and exercises can be found in the project wiki.

In August and September, we will also hold a number of online presentations for multipliers and interested parties. The corresponding dates will be published soon. If you are interested, you can also contact us directly: info@cumila.eu

How do I use CUMILA?

The CUMILA curriculum can be implemented 1:1. If you do not have the necessary teaching time available, the CUMILA curriculum at least serves as a suggestion.

The best way to use CUMILA is to follow this procedure:

  1. read the CUMILA syllabus and familiarise yourself with its structure.
  2. write down the topics that are relevant to you Compare the teaching units listed in the syllabus that are necessary for the work and compare them with the teaching units available to you
  3. if you have less time than the syllabus allows: Prioritise! Think about which units can be done as homework or which units you can do without if necessary.
  4. Finally, draw up your own plan for your lessons
  5. Familiarise yourself with the learning materials of the units you have chosen
  6. decide which materials you want to use and in which form.

We are currently working on an e-learning specifically for teachers and lecturers to teach them how to use CUMILA.
