Event description

Description

Led by Don Belt, a veteran National Geographic writer and editor, this fast-paced, four-hour workshop is designed for educators seeking new ways to use multimedia storytelling in the classroom.

Belt shares the community-based Slow Journalism curriculum he teaches at the University of Richmond, which is modeled on Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Salopek’s Out of Eden Walk, a 10-year digital media project tracing the path of ancient human migration from Ethiopia to the tip of South America.

The Pulitzer Center is one of the main education partners for the Out of Eden Walk project.

Salopek’s 21,000-mile foot journey provides an exciting resource for professors of journalism, geography, anthropology, education, environmental science, international studies, and other subjects.

This interactive workshop will offer practical tips on bringing a real-world, global perspective to your students by exposing them to Salopek’s literary dispatches, multimedia, and mapping—and the tools they’ll need to practice it themselves.

Space is limited. To reserve your place, please register online at http://bit.ly/2hsyvSh. For information about the workshop, contact Belt at dbelt@richmond.edu.

This event is organized by the Pulitzer Center and the University of Richmond Department of Journalism.
