Newspaper Division of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication
Educating the newsroom. Most of us who teach like to think we already do that. And we do, giving our students skills, experiences, perspectives, insights they use as starting points when they begin their newspaper careers. But the contributors to this issue's special section, titled" SPECIAL REPORT: Educating the Newsroom," suggest that our job as educators may not be finished when our students leave the campus. In newsrooms all over the country, training directors, coaches and consultants are in demand to help reporters and editors keep up with new technology and information, as well as to refresh those former students on some of the basics.
