AEJMC workshop: Journalism schools as news providers

The annual AEJMC conference in Denver kicks off with a pre-conference workshop on Tuesday 3 August journalism schools as news providers.

The workshop brings together journalism practitioners and educators to discuss how j-schools are filling gaps in news coverage through student journalism.

At the UBC Graduate School of Journalism, you can see examples of student reporting on local issues on TheThunderbird.ca and on our sister video site, ThunderbirdTV.ca.

I’m looking forward to learning about what other schools are doing and sharing ideas for best practice.

Here is the schedule for the Denver workshop.
