FaceBook Group for Instructors

Category: Networking Last Updated on May 16, 2017 Fred Ginsburg

FB LikeHello Fellow Media Faculty Member,

I'm an Assistant Professor at DePaul University. I recently created a private Facebook Group Page as a place where media instructors from around the world could network with each other.

It is a place for film, screenwriting, and other media instructors and professors to share ideas, materials, insights, resources, and more. Also, it would be a great place to brainstorm, trouble shoot, and ask questions and advice of each other. We are in such a unique and ever changing field, and I know personally I'd love to hear how other folks deal with challenges, celebrate victories, and balance the line between educator and artist.

So... WELCOME! (And please feel free to post items under the FILES tab; I will be posting some of my favorite assignments there to share!)
