Creative Educators Forum: The Strategic Educator: Mapping the Classroom to the Marketplace

In the 3rd annual Creative Educators Forum, PromaxBDA brings industry executives and educators together in a collaborative setting where they exchange ideas, brainstorm and identify improved strategies for working together to build a stronger pipeline of talent into the media and entertainment marketing industry.

The Creative Educators Forum sits within the largest conference for promotion, marketing and design professionals in the world – PromaxBDA: The Conference. With that, all attendees have access to some of the highest-level leaders and some of the most creative minds in the entertainment industry.

Session I: What a Difference a Partnership Makes: Transformative Approaches to Building Access Channels for Student Talent into the Media and Entertainment Industry
In order to achieve success and maintain a competitive advantage in today’s global media market, we must build the most important resource — the skills of the workforce. This panel session highlights nationally recognized programs that are working to build access channels for diverse creative talent into the media and entertainment industry. Learn from educators and entertainment industry leaders how they formed cross-sector partnerships to engage and train workforce ready students.
Session II: The Forum within the Forum
True to meaning of the word forum, we bring educators and industry executives together in roundtable discussions to share ideas, brainstorm new approaches to classroom design and curriculum development, and identify mechanisms through which to more closely align the industry internship, course assignments and mentorship programs with students’ needs. Industry professionals and educators alike will discuss approaches and programmatic strategies that will better map the classroom to the needs of the marketplace.

Session III: Digital, mobile and beyond
Learn first-hand from people in the digital and mobile marketing, content and design trenches what are the emerging trends and what skills, knowledge and experience your students will need to capitalize on the trends. Learn what large workflows look like and how entry level talent fit into that workflow.
