Check out the new KQED Media Academy for Educators, offering free, online, instructor-led courses and certificates of completion year-round.
We’re looking for Bay Area middle and high school classroom teachers who want to build their media-making skills and learn more about how inquiry-based learning can connect students across classrooms and subject areas. Applications due October 10.
What is KQED Academy?
KQED Academy is a year-long professional learning experience for educators that supports media literacy, media production and civic engagement in the classroom. Learn to design inquiry-based media-making projects with students that align with your curriculum and connect students to their peers. Throughout the year, KQED Academy teachers will come together through online work and in-person workshops. Online work will take place on two sites:
- KQED Teach - This is the home base for the KQED Academy community. Here, you will complete modules or short courses to build your media-making skills, communicate with other Academy participants through discussions and share your work.
- KQED Learn - This is the hub for all of your students’ activities. Here, you will work with your students to develop skills in asking questions, doing research, arguing from evidence and communicating their ideas--all in collaboration with other students across the district and beyond. Students will also publish their media projects on KQED Learn. Find out more about KQED Learn.
Who can apply?
KQED Academy is open to Bay Area middle and high school classroom teachers (grades 6-12) in science/engineering, math, English, social studies, humanities/social science (ethnic studies, psychology, etc.) and arts. We will accept up to 60 teachers.
When will it take place?
