The Teachers Institute Media Literacy Training Program is a series of workshops designed by Cinema/Chicago
to aid Chicago Public School educators in bringing new perspectives to curriculum development and classroom study through the use of film and multimedia. The Teachers Institute is designed as a comprehensive series on media literacy, led by renowned film and media professionals and professors. The goal of the Teachers Institute is to heighten media literacy awareness and its applications in teachers and provide them with the tools to incorporate film theory, multimedia deconstruction, and the impact of the moving image into their curricula.
Chicago Public School teachers who participate in the Teachers Institute receive CPDUs.
