    On Friday, Feb. 21, our bi-weekly #EdShift chat will focus on the question “does a journalism degree matter?” With that will come discussion of other sources of education and training outside standard J-schools. The chat will be moderated as usual by MediaShift’s Education Curator Katy Culver, with special guests Eric Newton of the Knight Foundation, Howard Finberg of the Poynter Institute and Mike Reilley of DePaul University. A Storify of this chat will be added to this page after the chat. Catch future #EdShift chats on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
