This two-day virtual conference for educators brings together award-winning journalists supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and digital educational resources created by Pulitzer Center and UChicago to explore how reporting on past public health crises throughout the world can offer valuable insights on the challenges presented by COVID-19. Featuring a combination of journalist-led presentations and interactive activities, the session will also introduce methods for integrating global news and journalism skills into diverse curricula to reinforce students’ critical thinking, creativity and communication skills. Participants will leave with the tools to incorporate new content into their classes, as well as connections to journalists working on pressing global issues. The session will also utilize breakout rooms to provide opportunities for participants to brainstorm, collaborate and network.

The 2020 Summer Institute for Educators is co-sponsored by the University of Chicago Center for East Asian Studies, Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies, and Center for Middle Eastern Studies, and it is presented in partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. It is made possible through generous support from the Title VI National Resource Center grants from the US Department of Education.
