More details and registration.

By using our everyday digital media as a tool for creative and critical learning, this workshop develops a digital literacy among students and demonstrates how we, educators, could engage digital media as a way to promote inclusion and diversity in practice of learning and teaching. Yeong Ran Kim will be facilitating. Kim has a professional background in filmmaking, community media workshops, and creative artwork, in addition to their academic credentials. The workshop will offer participants practice-based exercises, such as a pair-up interview skill, incorporating drawings, dancing, or sounds into students’ reflections and responses to Willowbrook mile and campus. A short-term outcome of the media workshop will be the class documentary about the afterlives of Willowbrook.

Please contact Hosu Kim (College of Staten Island) if you have any questions (Hosu.Kim (at)
