The Minority Health Disparities Initiative is sponsoring a Summer Institute Workshop: Thinking, Seeing, and Reading for iGeneration Students: Innovative Teaching & Civic Engagement Strategies for High School Courses on July 25th and 26th, 2016. The workshop will run from 9:15 am - 6:00 pm on July 25th and from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm on the 26th at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the Unity Room at the The Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center (attached to Student Union). 

 The purpose of this workshop is to engage high school teachers and university education majors (teachers-to-be) in a hands-on workshop of how to utilize innovative media/visual literacy teaching and civic engagement strategies into traditional courses – in particular for this workshop we will focus on freshman health courses and community health advocacy. Despite the health focus, these strategies are not course specific and can be applied across the board to other subject matters including history, science, English, and English Language Learners. The workshop is free and designed specifically for education majors and high school teachers. Participants will need to bring a laptop or portable device to be able to access and use the materials in the workshop.
