June 19 & June 20, 2020

In the midst of upheaval, what’s possible to prepare the next generation of journalists?

Our purpose: to create a space for students, educators, media professionals and their allies to explore this question together.

Our aspiration: you discover and pursue promising possibilities.

The DC Sessions, 2007 breakout session on Education that Matters,


We’ll set the stage with a check-in from all and a few words from Dr. Michelle Ferrier

Set the Agenda

We’ll do some simple self-organizing to set our agenda in real-time. Have a question you want to explore? Call a session. The topics we discuss are in your hands.

Breakout Group Conversations

We’ll break into small groups for the conversations in the agenda set by you.

Closing Reflections

We’ll come back together to reflect on what we discovered, where we are now, and what’s next.
