Course overview

This course is part of a series of six Adobe Generation Professional courses designed to help educators become creators, not just consumers, of digital media. Throughout the series, you’ll learn new tools and techniques, explore best practices for teaching and learning, and unleash your creativity to help drive student outcomes. Drop in for one or engage in many, but we guarantee this series will help you and your students take your digital skills and creativity to the next level.

This six-week course empowers educators to create and manipulate digital images in an intensive, hands-on collaborative experience. Learn how different kinds of digital images are made using the latest Adobe tools, and explore best practices for integrating digital media into your classroom.

All the content you produce can be used to model good practice within your own school or college. Each week of the course will introduce you to a new theme and an industry expert from the world of digital design. As a result, you’ll become more confident with cutting-edge digital tools, more effective as a teacher, and more of an inspiration to your students.
