Video for Change Curriculum

This curriculum contains 7 modules and 37 individual sessions which cover both advocacy strategy and hands-on video production. Though originally designed for an eight to ten-day training, we encourage you to explore the sessions that interest you, download the materials and tailor the curriculum for your individual use.

 

Included in each session:

  • Downloadable Facilitator Notes, Participant Notes, Reference Sheets and Worksheets (PDF & .doc);
  • Embedded PowerPoints so you can see the key points and structure of the session;
  • Valuable resources, case studies and suggested exercises for facilitators;
  • Descriptions of session objectives, worksheets and hands-on exercises for participants;
  • Suggested duration and layout of each session and activity (Note: The time and layout of the session may vary on the number of participants).
