MAIN SESSIONS:

  • IT’S PERSONAL (AND PROFESSIONAL!)
    Advising can be full of challenges, but each of those is an opportunity. Together we’ll look at the possibilities for professional development and life balance at the same time. When we use our time wisely and take care of first things first, everyone in our lives will benefit.  Watch and listen to Sarah talk about this session in this video.
  • THE POTENTIAL OF DATA JOURNALISM
    Storytelling with data is an essential skill for today’s journalists. This session will showcase the power of data and introduce participants to what type of documents and databases exist with tips for how to get started. Watch and listen to Sarah talk about this session in this video.
  • A SKILLS-BASED NEWSROOM
    With a focus on core skills rather than publication type or production tool, students gain valuable experiences for any platform. See how yearbook, newspaper, broadcast, web and social can work together rather than independently and why a comprehensive media model makes sense. Watch and listen to Sarah talk about this session in this video.
  • EYES FOR DESIGN
    Principles of design carry across any sized page or screen. This session will address key concepts such as contrast, unity, alignment and scale. Then we’ll look at elements like type, space and color for consistency and variety in design. Watch and listen to Sarah talk about this session in this video.
