Curation Process

The Teaching Media editorial board is committed to curating a diverse array of teaching materials to share with scholars and teachers. Bi-monthly, the board will distribute a call for submissions based on a specified teaching theme designed to generate a conversation on current issues in media studies. Contributors will be asked to submit innovative teaching materials that they have used or plan to use in the classroom. To contextualize each unit, each scholar will be asked to include detailed instructions, objectives, goals, and outcomes with their respective submissions
