Professional Development

Through the lens of new media, the Global Lives Project assists in developing enriching resources for teachers interested in globalization, cross-cultural awareness, empathy, community engagement, and media literacy.

We offer professional development workshops with Global Lives educators to develop custom multi-disciplinary lessons, integrated unit plans, and enrichment activities for elementary, middle and high school students.

By participating in one of our full-day professional development workshops, you will:

  • Collaborate with colleagues and Global Lives Project educators
  • Navigate our website to access hundreds of hours of Global Lives footage from 17 different countries around the world
  • Learn how to customize our Unheard Stories curriculum
  • Incorporate our films and lessons into your pre-existing curriculum
  • Design customized Global Lives Project lessons for students grades 6 – 12 across multiple disciplines
  • Learn how to incorporate filmmaking into the classroom

Please contact us to discuss the details. We will work directly with your school to plan a professional development day at a location of your choice.
