Learn fresh ways to collaborate, experiment and create content from educators who have gotten buy-in from universities and local communities on ambitious reporting projects. You’ll hear from winners of the Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education, which supports unique collaborations between local newsrooms and universities. Learn how these enterprising educators have created projects with their communities and used learnings from their projects to foster more innovative learning experiences in their j-school curriculum. Educators, students and newsroom leaders can find inspiration for creating their own experimental prototypes and working closely with local news outlets.

This session is designed for:

  • Students and educators interested in learning about innovative university projects
  • Anyone who wants to hear some real talk about both the benefits and challenges of organizational partnerships
  • Anyone in a professional newsroom curious how to strengthen ties with a local college or university
