Upcoming Workshops for Teachers


Transformative Learning: A Digital Storytelling Workshop for Teachers

June 5th and 6th, 8th and 9th

Daily Schedule: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Registration Fee: $35.00**
Required materials: Laptop with the ability to connect to UA’s free Wi-Fi
Instructors: Jen Nowicki-Clark & Josh Schachter
This professional development workshop for classroom teachers will support educators in crafting digital stories about their own transformative learning and teaching experiences.

You will be asked to reflect on what learning experiences were transformative as a child, how that shapes your teaching, and how that informs your vision for the future of education and the role of the community in realizing that vision.These stories are intended to spark wider community engagement and conversation around how to collectively create an education system that ensures that all students and teachers have the resources and support to reach their full potential.

Participants will learn the basics of digital story development and production. By the end of the workshop, each participant will have completed their own 2-3 minute video.

**The usual fee for this 4-day digital storytelling workshop is $550/person, but thanks to the support of our sponsors, we are able to make this workshop financially accessible. In addition to this registration fee, participants are responsible for their own parking fees for the course of the workshop. Parking is managed by the University’s Parking and Transportation and not by the Poetry Center. Garage rates are $8 per day. The Poetry Center is also located near a streetcar stop and we encourage carpooling or streetcar use.
