Writers Who Teach with Tech

With the rise of online learning and media comes increased demand for creative skills in these arenas. This 5-week writing workshop is for writers who instruct and lead others with technology, and focuses on building skills in areas applied to writing, learning design and technology.

In the style of collaborative learning, we will have a focused live webinar each week, as well as asynchronous work in an online forum that provides an additional space for shared resources, feedback and conversations. We will address a range of practical topics, from writing for video instruction to visual storytelling and scriptwriting for virtual reality. The focuses each week allow us to build skills and grow. You will find passion, projects, peers and play in a supportive environment that emphasizes community and connection.

10% discount available for K-12 teachers and adjunct professors if you sign up by March 31. Please inquire for details.
