Please join Pulitzer Center and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for an engaging webinar and workshop series Monday, June 28-Wednesday, June 30, 2021 that will introduce techniques for integrating journalism about Latin America, media literacy skills, and global competency skills into the curriculum. Led by education staff and journalist-grantees from the Pulitzer Center, this virtual Institute will include presentations by award-winning journalists Ana Maria Arevalo Gosen, Anita Pouchard Serra, and Valentina Oropeza. The Institute is also designed to give participants the opportunity to collectively explore ways to use journalism to teach communication and critical thinking skills, and to analyze how other instructors have employed Pulitzer resources to support their curricula and help students develop critical thinking, communication skills, and empathy.
