Free Teachers' Webinars

MIFF, in partnership with the Modern Language Teachers' Association of Victoria (MLTAV), will present eight FREE webinars for teachers during term 2 of 2017. The webinars are designed to demonstrate to teachers how to work with each of the MIFF Schools films in the classroom, before and after viewing them at MIFF. 

Each webinar will comprise: 

  • a 20-minute presentation by a film analysis specialist
  • a 20-minute presentation by a language specialist
  • 20 minutes for questions. 

MLTAV will provide Certificates of Participation to recognise Professional Learning (PL) for all teachers who participate in the live webinars, as well as those who later access and engage with the archived versions. This Professional Learning evidence can be used to contribute to the PL requirements for teacher registration with the Victorian Institute of Teaching.

The webinars are FREE and participating teachers who wish to view them live and interact with the presenters will simply need access to the internet.
