CFC Criteria: Provide a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education for educators and/or faculty to observe specialized departments or techniques in the production process.
Dan Says: Community college students benefit when industry experts and educators work together. Help with curriculum development or record how-to videos that can be utilized across multiple campuses. Hosting a conference can be a great way to create a "one stop shop" that serves students, instructors, and administrators. Keeping educators informed of industry changes helps us better prepare students for success in the film industry.
