Patiala: In his presidential address at the inaugural session of the three-day UNESCO-supported capacity building workshop on the media and information literacy for youth and youth-led organisations, Dr AS Chawla, Dean, Research, Punjabi University, said the media and information literacy (MIL) skills were necessary for promoting the use of knowledge for learning and research. “Teachers should encourage students to be more inquisitive.
