Media Educators of Los Angeles (MELA) has created a community for the purpose of networking, professional development, empowering individual teachers, and giving our students the best educational and media career opportunities in the greater Los Angeles area. We provide a common voice for advocacy, connecting education and industry, and improving media education.
Regular networking events create and strengthen our community and industry connections. Teachers involved in media production share resources and best practices, while industry partners provide up-to-date information about media related trends, practices, and prospects. Our goals are to enhance students’ employability and to strengthen the Los Angeles media entertainment world.
Membership in MELA provides all teachers a place to grow, share, explore, and give voice to the issues and concerns surrounding the teaching of media arts.
Founded in 2009. Rebooting in 2014.
