She joins government-appointed experts from across academia, civil society, tech companies, regulators, and media organisations on the Board.
Kate Morris said: “I am delighted to be able to share my research expertise with those working in the media literacy sector. In joining this group of experts I hope that, together, we can improve media literacy rates across the UK.”
