#EdShift Chat: How to Hack Your Curriculum

    by Lauren Simonis
    April 15, 2014

    On Friday, April 18, our bi-weekly #EdShift chat will focus on helping educators “hack the curriculum” with experiments. The special guests will include first-round winners of the recent Challenge Fund for Innovation in Journalism Education.

    The chat will take place on Twitter at the #EdShift hashtag at 10 am PT / 1 pm ET. It will be moderated as usual by MediaShift’s Education Curator Katy Culver, with special guests David Craig of the University of Oklahoma, Cindy Royal of Texas State University and Robert Gutsche of Florida International University. These four winners will briefly discuss their projects, and then explain how others can implement innovation in their own classrooms and find funding to do it.

    The Online News Association, The Democracy Fund, Ethics & Excellence in Journalism, Knight Foundation and McCormick Foundation support the Challenge Fund, which is designed to stimulate experimentation in journalism curricula through collaborations that benefit communities. Join the conversation and get more details about these innovative ideas and how you might adapt them in your own programs.


    Catch future #EdShift chats on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.
