Join us for an intense and intensely fun workshop for students and advisers packed with training designed to help you learn and immediately put into practice methods to improve your website and journalism program. SNO co-founder Jason Wallestad and 2015 National Journalism Teacher of the Year Mitch Eden will lead sessions to meet you where you are and take you and your program to the next level.
Jason’s group instruction will concentrate on showing methods to keep your site fresh, manage content on your home page, improve the look and utility of your story pages and how to pluck relevant information from your analytics to make decisions about coverage and promotion.
Mitch will work with advisers and discuss all topics including staff organization, workflow, grading, covering sensitive topics, support, law & ethics, motivation and culture.
You’ll have plenty of time to interact with other schools and to practice what you’ve learned.
COST: $250 per school team.
One adviser plus one or two students. Add a student for $75. Fees do not include meals or lodging.
Space is limited! Please reserve your spot by June 1, 2020.
