Teaching with Film for Social Change Learning
Pre-Convention Conference with Odyssey
This pre-session will begin with lunch and will be followed by a presentation from Odyssey Impact about Odyssey documentary films for community engagement and social change learning. Odyssey team members will share lessons learned from their impact campaigns. Invited faculty presenters will discuss issues of social change learning and teaching strategies in the classroom.
The focus: Participants will engage questions about how to tackle issues such as: student resistance, sensitive content, and social change learning dynamics and issues in the classroom. Additional questions will involve how does social change learning happen – during a film and after? What creates action and/or transformed perspective? How is it measured? When does it fail? What teaching strategies are most effective?
Limit 50 participants. Faculty in Theological Schools and departments of religion are encouraged to pre-register.
