Expectations. This is not a “sit and get” experience. Learning activities primarily focus on participants creating simple forms of media as a way to represent their own learning experiences, followed by dialogue, discussion, and reflection on how these practices can be applied in elementary and secondary contexts.

  • STRUCTURE: Each week, participants engage with the class in a one-hour Zoom conference, where learning activities are modeled, with time for small group discussion and dialogue. During the week, participants take time to complete some hands-on creative media production activities that deepen your learning experience. Expect to spend 3 - 6 hours each week in this course.
  • THE POWER OF TWO: Creative collaboration is an essential component of this course. You will work with a learning partner to create media to represent your learning. Coaching sessions with partner teams occur on an as-needed basis.
  • TARGET AUDIENCE: For any teacher interested in integrating multi-media and PBL into their teaching. No special technology skills or experience is required. Technology beginners are welcome!
