C-SPAN's 2014 Summer Educators' Conference
Each year, C-SPAN hosts a Summer Educators’ Conference in Washington, DC. The day-and-a-half long conference is held during the month of July at C-SPAN’s headquarters in the heart of Washington, DC. Airfare to and from Washington, two nights’ hotel stay, and meals during the conference are all provided by C-SPAN.
At this conference middle and high school educators (grades 6-12) gather from around the country to learn more about C-SPAN and how to effectively integrate C-SPAN’s online resources into their classrooms.
Applications are currently closed. Attendees will be selected and announced by Friday, April 18, 2014
Conference participants learn:
- About C-SPAN’s mission, programming, and event coverage
- How to navigate C-SPAN’s programs, websites and resources
- About our StudentCam and Teacher Fellowship enrichment opportunities that are available to students and educators
- Examples of how colleagues nationwide have effectively incorporated C-SPAN’s programming and resources into their curriculums to create engaging learning experiences for students
This year C-SPAN is hosting two Educators’ Conferences:

- Thursday and Friday, July 10th-11th: This conference is open to high school educators.
C-SPAN's 2014 Teacher Fellowship Program
C-SPAN invites teachers of social studies, as well as media/ technology educators in grades 6-12, who are highly familiar with C-SPAN’s programs and demonstrate successful innovative methods of integrating C-SPAN’s programming and resources into their teaching practices, to apply for an opportunity to participate in its 2014 Teacher Fellowship Program, a project of the C-SPAN Education Foundation. This Fellowship is open to certified teachers in public or private schools who are members of C-SPAN Classroom, a free membership service dedicated to supporting educators’ use of C-SPAN programming in their classrooms.
For four weeks during summer 2014, Fellowship recipients will collaborate with C-SPAN’s Education department to develop new teaching materials using C-SPAN resources in order to better serve our Classroom members nationwide. This program takes place at C-SPAN’s offices in Washington, DC. Each Fellow receives an award valued at $7,000 which includes housing and travel expenses. Fellows may also participate in C-SPAN’s Summer Educators’ Conference where they share their ideas with education colleagues about creating innovative learning experiences using C-SPAN’s programs and websites.
Applications are currently closed. The three Fellowship recipients have been selected and will be announced shortly.
