    In the ever-shifting media environment, journalists who are running newsrooms often find themselves thinking more like CEOs and innovation chiefs than editors or producers. But where do they learn the skills they need to make those kinds of decisions and lead their staffs through immense changes in the industry?

    On Tuesday, July 7, our #EdShift chat on Twitter will explore ways of teaching entrepreneurship, particularly in journalism programs that are often focused on how to cover the who, what, when, where and why. Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern Time / 12 p.m. Central Time / 10 a.m. Pacific Time as we discuss the ways educators are finding to teach students how to think creatively about innovating, adjust to changing market conditions and react to audience demands.

    The chat will be moderated by Stacy Forster of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and guests will include Jan Schaffer of J-Lab, Amy Eisman of American University, David Cohn, executive producer of AJ+, Sean Branagan of Syracuse University and more. A Storify compilation of the chat will be added to this page after the chat.
