International films transport an audience to new lands and provide viewers with unique insight into other cultures. Through this three day workshop, teachers will increase their understanding of film as an education tool to inspire interdisciplinary learning about world history and cultures, current events, and other global concepts.

Through this workshop, participants will:

  • Participate in presentations by PSU faculty members
  • Explore strategies to using film in the classroom
  • View screenings of multiple international films
  • Receive resources to support education through film

Breakfast and snacks will be provided throughout the workshop.
