The first hour of the annual Educators’ Meetup will feature presentations from the 2018 Tow-Knight fellows, part of the Disruptive Journalism Educators Network on Facebook. The six standout forward-thinkers were selected for their plans to research ways to elevate an area of journalism education, specifically:

The final 30 minutes of the session combines a poster session with general and/or micro discussions on ways to evolve the ONA Educators’ group efforts. Presenters include:

  • News in a Snap: Snapchat Discover is a new (ish) venue for legacy media and net-born newsrooms and they need to know more about how they use the platform. Peg Achterman, Seattle Pacific.
  • Adaptation of Journalism Curricula in the Age of Digital Media: A qualitative multiple case study of small programs. Amanda Bright, Georgia.
  • Transparency in Journalism: Gina Chen, Texas-Austin.
  • Sexism on the SetGendered expectations of TV broadcasters in a social media world. Teri Finneman, Kansas.
  • The Elusive Engagement Metric: A Hearken case study. Jacob Nelson, Arizona State.
  • Networked News, Racial Divides: How power and privilege shape public discourse in progressive communities. Sue Robinson, Wisconsin-Madison.
  • News/local news survey: Local news isn’t ‘fake’. Kristy Roschke, Arizona State.

The educators’ session is supported by the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York.

This session is designed for:

  • Any and all educators. Given the mix of networking and educational learning, you’re bound to take away some compelling ideas for research or advancing your classes and/or curriculum.
