This multi-day virtual conference for educators brings together award-winning journalists supported by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and digital educational resources created by Pulitzer Center and UChicago to highlight global and local inequalities that COVID-19 has exacerbated. From the quelling of Hong Kong’s protest movement to the healthcare crisis among undocumented migrants in Bosnia-Herzegovina and issues of governance in the Arab world, conference sessions will explore the far-reaching impacts of the global pandemic on pre-existing disparities across the world.

Featuring a combination of journalist-led presentations and interactive activities, the session will also introduce methods for integrating global news and journalism skills into diverse curricula to reinforce students’ critical thinking, creativity and communication skills. Participants will leave with the tools to incorporate new content into their classes, as well as connections to journalists working on pressing global issues. Illinois-based educators are eligible to receive CPDU credits for attendance.
