EDIT Media (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Teaching Media) is an initiative that developed out of the Gender Caucus and Diversity and Inclusion Caucus of the University Film and Video Association. We are a consortium of production faculty from around the U.S. teaching at institutions ranging from community colleges to small private institutions to large public universities. We are dedicated to researching, developing, and educating about best practices in inclusive teaching in our field.
