If you are local to Pittsburgh, join us in-person at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette headquarters for an engaging (and FREE!) day of professional learning. Here, you’ll learn from Post-Gazette journalists, alongside experts from The News Literacy Project, about critical news literacy concepts you can take back to the classroom.

If you are unable to join in-person, no problem! Our virtual attendance option makes it easy to participate with other educators in real-time, via Zoom.

The day’s programming will culminate with a very special NewsLit Nation happy hour event, hosted at Southern Tier Brewery in the heart of Pittsburgh.

If you are a middle or high school teacher, librarian, or other educator, or you know one who might be interested, please register and tell your colleagues about NewsLitCamp.

Educators are eligible to receive Act 48 credits by attending this event. Register today!
