Media Education FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS

SHIFT: Teacher Professional Development

SHIFT changes how teachers teach and students learn

Utah Film Center’s SHIFT program offers grades 4-12 educators immersive, high-quality professional development and curriculum that supports the integration of the filmmaking process into educational settings. Workshops and instructional materials provide comprehensive, standards-linked lesson plans to guide educators on how to produce documentaries, public service announcements (PSAs), instructional videos, personal narratives, and other short film projects with their students. The SHIFT model is committed to strengthening teacher practice, increasing student achievement, and developing critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills.

SHIFT teacher registration for the 2021-2022 is coming soon! Check back soon for more updates.
