Outreach Academy

With the convention in Indianapolis this fall, it would be a great opportunity for new advisers to attend the JEA Outreach Academy.

As you know, teaching journalism can be a real challenge — especially the way trends and issues change. It can be hard for any journalism educator, but especially those who are new or in districts what may be resource-challenged.

That’s one of the reasons the JEA has, for the past 11 years, offered a one-day workshop at each convention for new advisers who are minorities, teach in minority-majority schools, or in under-served district.

The Outreach Academy is offered on the Thursday of the convention and gives participants a “boot camp” introduction — and resources — to journalism education.  The workshop is led by Anthony Whitten, Scholastic Journalism Outreach Coordinator at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.

The Outreach Academy in Indianapolis will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10.
In addition to free registration, there is an amazing list of benefits and bonuses available to participants.   Information about the OutreachAcademy is available at  About the Outreach Academy  with the application at this link. Applicants need to make sure to select the IndyOutreach Academy on the pull-down menu, Outreach Academy Application.
