Past Event or Opportunity

Join NewsLitCamp Pittsburgh, in partnership with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Allegheny Intermediate Unit, and sponsored by The Grable Foundation! This event is made possible by The News Literacy Project (NLP), a national, non-partisan education non-profit providing programs and resources for educators and the public to teach, learn, and share the abilities needed to be smart, active consumers of news and information.
NewsLitCamp is a professional development event designed to empower educators to embed news literacy into any subject matter they teach. Sessions aim to demystify and explain what distinguishes quality journalism, the impact of misinformation in the news, and other critical news literacy subjects. At NewsLitCamp, educators will hear from journalists and the news literacy experts at NLP as they establish the core skills and concepts of news literacy education and introduce teaching tools to implement in the classroom.
This is a hybrid-style event, serving educators in the Southwest Pennsylvania area. If local to Pittsburgh, please join this even in person at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette offices by selecting the In-Person ticket option when registering via Eventbrite). To join this event remotely (sessions will be livestreamed via Zoom), select the Virtual ticket option.
This event counts toward Act 48 credits! Earn 6 hours of attendance by joining NewsLitCamp Pittsburgh. For questions, email at email@example.com.
In-person attendees can celebrate their news literacy knowledge with a special post-event NewsLit Nation happy hour at Southern Tier Brewery, starting at 3:15 p.m. ET.
