About the Summer Seminar Series
This will be a series of weekly Seminars over the course of consecutive weeks. You can register for each event separately, but we invite you to get the most out of the series, to register for all four sessions and receive a discount.

*If you select to register for all sessions, only do so on ONE of the sessions. Select the "all seminars" option, and you will be added to all sessions within 24 hours.

Stories Objects Hold and Inspire
with Lisa Falk, Head of Community Engagement, Arizona State Museum and Museum Educator, Exhibit Developer, Folklorist, and Artist

DESCRIPTION: Learn to read an object and illuminate the stories that it holds. Using cultural objects, artworks, photographs, and personal household objects participants will discover stories both native to an object and ones inspired by objects. Writing exercises and discussion ideas will be shared. Led by Lisa Falk, a museum educator and folklorist who heads the Arizona State Museum’s Community Engagement Division responsible for exhibits and public programs.

Building Community in the Virtual Classroom
What happens to Place Based Learning when we are sequestered? How do we share the stories that provide understanding of ourselves and our communities? Join us in bringing community, connection and deeper meaning to the virtual classroom (and beyond). We are harnessing this unprecedented opportunity of crisis and isolation and transforming it into an opportunity to strengthen and restore ourselves, our students, and our communities.

During the Seminar Series veteran teachers  will share innovative and highly doable ideas that break down physical walls using storytelling techniques that cross disciplines. Seminar workshop leaders are longtime CWI associates who come from K-16 classrooms, administrators concerned with larger issues of equity, along with community-based educator-innovators from a wide array of fields, including the arts, science, folklore, social justice, and more.

Make Important Connections
Seminar participants will experience new ways of working with a variety of exciting online apps that facilitate storytelling, community connections, and the spirit of CWI’s Place Based Service-Learning, Sustainability, and Global Citizenship initiatives. Before the seminar, participants will be invited to make connections with other participants and CWI will provide additional ways to continue those connections as ongoing supportive relationships.

PD Certificate of Participation for Contact Hours
Participants will receive professional certificates representing time spent in a learning program. Check with your local LEA or professional organization to confirm eligibility.
