UW-Milwaukee will offer an engaging webinar and hands-on workshop which introduces techniques for integrating journalism about Latin American, media literacy skills, and global competency skills into the curriculum. Led by education staff from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis reporting, a non-profit journalism and education organization with a mission to raise awareness of underreported global issues through public outreach and support for journalists, this virtual Institute will include presentations by award-winning journalists who received support from the Center to report for various publications on issues such as social justice in Latin America, the health equity and immigration. Confirmed speakers include Prodavinci editor Valentina Oropeza, photojournalist Anita Pouchard Serra, and visual storyteller Ana Maria Arevalo Gosen. The Institute is also designed to give participants the opportunity to collectively explore ways to use journalism to teach communication and critical thinking skills, and to analyze how other instructors have employed Pulitzer resources to support their curricula and help students develop critical thinking, communication skills, and empathy.
Each session begins at 9:00 am CDT and concludes at 12:00 pm CDT.
