What is ours to do now? – Friday, July 10, 1-3 p.m. ET
Join a conversation informed by your questions, frustrations, and aspirations.
Are you an undergraduate or graduate student trying to figure out what’s next after an internship or fellowship was canceled or delayed by COVID-19?
Are you an educator wondering how to build remote classes and make them meaningful for an industry that was already in upheaval?
Are you wondering what the future of news is and what your place will be in that future?
Imagine the next internship experience, curriculum, or reinvention of journalism education that helps move toward a desirable future.
Join an open conference, an opportunity for small group discussions, networking and community connection, where innovative projects large and small may be born or accelerated.
We’ll set the agenda in real-time around the questions that matter most to you. Using an online variant of Journalism That Matters’ signature approach to “unconferencing” – a participant driven exchange of information and ideas – we’ll set the stage for a lively and productive exchange around challenging questions with a diverse group of peers who care about journalism education with civic impact.
A simple step destined to make a great impact!
