A recording is available of the webinar in which I (Sheila Webber, Information School, University of Sheffield) was presenting a talk, Transformational Media and Information Literacy learning for adult citizens: “this street is full of heroes”, coauthored with Bill Johnston, Honorary Research Fellow, Strathclyde University, on 29th October 2019. The session was chaired by my colleague Dr Pamela McKinney, and it was part of the Information School's celebration of Global Media and Information Literacy Week. I was outlining use of theories from adult education and information science to address the challenge of engaging adult citizens critically and transformationally with media and Information Literacy. As the Media and Information Literacy (MIL) concept matures, it is important to expand the MIL focus to the majority of the population who are not in formal education. The title quotation is from a poem by Benjamin Zephaniah (transformed to street art in Sheffield) which inspires us to think of each citizen as a potential MIL hero.
