Workshop Details

How To Get Started

Welcome educators and youth leaders. If you work with youth in school or out-of-school, and are interested in integrating the filmmaking and other digital storytelling strategies into your instruction, SHIFT can train and guide you on how to produce documentaries, public service announcements (PSAs), instructional videos, personal narratives, and other short film projects with your students. Our workshops and ongoing trainings are most often grant funded (and therefore at no charge to you). We work with school districts and partner with community organizations to customize professional development experiences for educators to fit the needs and geographic location of desired participants. Please check our upcoming workshops page to find a workshop that works for you.

SHIFT Workshop Models

We understand that teachers’ plates are most often full.  For that reason we offer distinct professional development workshop models to accommodate busy schedules.  The Yearlong Intensive Model begins with a two to three-day intensive training followed by quarterly or monthly trainings throughout the school year.  The Lite Model can be customized to fit your schedule and training needs, and typically it is a stand alone hands-on 2 to 3-day workshop that walks educators through the filmmaking process and how that integrates into content instruction. We also offer 1 to 3-hour Introductory   workshop experiences typically at conferences and festivals that start with a youth media overview and introduces educators to the digital storytelling process and resources. Participant incentives vary depending on the commitment level – all workshop participants receive a SHIFT filmmaking curriculum manual and eligible educators receive professional development credit for participating. To apply or register, please consult our “upcoming workshops” page.
