Teaching with Digital Media Summer Institute (CANCELLED)
The Teaching with Digital Media Summer Institute has been cancelled. Please check the IML website in September for information about our Fall 2012 offerings.
Todays students inhabit a visual, networked culture. They connect and communicate with their peers – and the public – through digital media. Many assume that these digital natives are fully literate with regard to media; however, we believe that students need guidance, support and inspiration to realize their full academic potential with digital media.
The Teaching with Digital Media Summer Institute offers an opportunity for K-12 teachers to learn to provide that guidance, and to explore the ways in which media can be used to enrich teaching and learning. Building on the expertise of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, as well as a ten-year history of research on digital teaching and learning at the IML, this five-day workshop is designed to help teachers stimulate and motivate students by integrating digital media into their classrooms, using whatever tools are available.
The IML will hold one Teaching with Digital Media Summer Institute in 2012, which will run August 6-10. The Summer Institute will cover the same material as the Teaching with Digital Media online course, but will be condensed to an intensive five-day digital media “boot camp”.
