Free IWitness Webinar Thurs., August 20

Educators are invited to participate in a free IWitness webinar Thurs., Aug. 20 at 4 p.m. PST, to learn more about integrating IWitness into their curriculum.

The webinar will be led by Lesly Culp, senior education specialist and trainer at USC Shoah Foundation.

The hour-long IWitness webinar, held the third Thursday of every month, is designed to be more specific and hands-on than webinars have been in the past. Each webinar will be dedicated to a specific topic as opposed to a general overview, and will focus on building educators’ skills within IWitness.

The webinar will provide advice and insight about IWitness that educators might not discover on their own, Culp said. Many users simply scratch the surface of what the website is capable of – only using the clips they can find on IWitness’s Watch page, for example. The webinars may also be particularly useful for educators who aren’t able to attend an in-person workshop or training session.
