Weekend Workshop: Media Culture in Contemporary China: A conference and workshop for educators
Professional development opportunity open to interested K-12 educators
Date: October 22, 2011
Benefits: This workshop discussed how commerce and culture come together in theme parks and looked at the history of Chinese theme parks in the US and theme parks in China. Together with workshop coordinators Clayton Dube, Associate Director of USCI, and Xin Jiang, USC School of Education graduate student, 19 teachers brainstormed ways in which students might wrestle with the sorts of decisions that theme park planners confront as a way of thinking about how culture is conveyed.
