Free Multimedia Workshop in Illinois

Header for Illinois Multimedia Workshop

The Eastern Illinois University Journalism Department is partnering with the McCormick Foundation, the Illinois Press Foundation, the Illinois JEA and the Department of Communication at Roosevelt University to offer a free High School Educators Multimedia Workshop Friday-Sunday, Oct. 23-25 in the Chicago suburb of Schaumburg.

Any adviser is welcome to apply, although we expect most attendees will come from Illinois or surrounding states. The workshop will offer 13.5 CPDU to Illinois teachers. Stipends also are available to pay substitutes for the missed class day on Friday.
