Introduce educators to foundational media literacy practices through these trainings, which can range from two hours to a full day. Participants take part in inquiry-driven activities and share their interpretations of media documents presented by the facilitators. Attendees are then invited to reflect on how the learning experience resonates with their teaching context.

Educators are supported in designing, implementing and revising their media literacy practices over an extended period of time with abundant resources and customized training along the way. The flexible format, offered fully online or through a hybrid approach, enables participants to learn from experts and work with their colleagues to apply learning theories and models to their teaching, develop their own activities, implement new instructional strategies, and reflect on their practice.
