On Friday, October 24, our #EdShift chat will focus on green shoots in journalism education. Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern Time/12 p.m. Central Time/10 a.m. Pacific Time as we discuss teaching innovations that others can model and remix into their own curricula.
The chat will be moderated as usual by MediaShift’s Education Curator Katy Culver, with special guest Eric Newton from the Knight Foundation. A Storify of the chat will be added to this page after the chat.
The chat comes in advance of an Oct. 30 event at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism. In celebration of the latest update to Newton’s Searchlights and Sunglasses, RJI will be highlighting some of these trailblazing efforts during its “Green Shoots in Journalism Education” program. Participants in person and via live-stream will hear from three deans, five professors and others who have been trying out new ideas and encouraging innovation.
