Higher Education

We work with pre-service teachers, continuing education programs, and add interdisciplinary components to existing higher ed programs and courses.

Our constantly evolving media landscape has positioned all of us–from Kindergarteners to tenured professors–as learners, providing unprecedented opportunities to rethink what can happen in and out of the classroom.

We believe educators at all levels must reflect on their own biases, hopes, and fears around media use to effectively open their pedagogy to opportunities emerging through our media-saturated environment.

Our work in higher ed has included:

  • Collaboratively planned and co-facilitated media projects, productions, activities, and units of study with professors, leaders of nonprofit organizations, and administrators and faculty in K-12 schools
  • Project-based work that challenges pre-service and in-service teachers to plan, execute and analyze learning experiences that blend existing teaching goals with media literacy practices and productions
  • Collaboratively planned video productions that encourage reflection and metacognition, clear articulation of best practices, and investigation of challenges
