This Sunday, February 22, at 8 p.m. EST, it’s “Bring a Professor Night” at CollegeJourn, a weekly live online chat about student media and journalism education.
I spoke with Suzanne Yada today about the chat, why it’s so important to bring the faculty to the table, and what she thinks they can learn from their students. Suzanne is one of the CollegeJourn moderators, and a student at the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at San Jose State University. (Full disclosure: I’m still finishing up my graduate degree in the same department.)
- The live chat starts at 8 p.m. EST on Sunday night at CollegeJourn.
- Follow @collegejourn on Twitter, plus @suzanneyada, and some of the other journalism students and educators helping to set this up: @laurenmichell, @hidama, and @cicm.
- CollegeJourn asked how journalism schools can better prepare students for the real world, and you answered.
- Want to jump into the video conversation about that question? There’s a Seesmic thread that has you covered.
(Hat tips to Kristen Taylor and the Knight Pulse crew for the side-by-side Skype video recording idea, which I’ve poorly executed here, and to @benleis of The Campus Buzz who started #collegejourn as a live Twitter chat in the style of #journchat.)
