CSJ Advanced Advising Workshop

Get Ahead of the Curve

Like so much else, the Advanced Advising Workshop was on pause during 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic. But we’re planning to be back again in 2022.

Some of those already chosen to attend in 2020 have left teaching or had other life-changing events and will not be joining us. So… watch this page for details right after Jan. 1, 2022 when we open applications for additional attendees.

If you're ready to refresh and expand your advising skills when it comes to all that's possible with today's student media, consider what you could learn in a week next summer.

At no cost to you, Kent State University's Center for Scholastic Journalism is once again offering an immersive, hands-on workshop for those who are already comfortable with the basics of content, technology, law and ethics. Training with national media and digital experts on a college campus, you'll be ready to take the next step - whatever it may be for your program. We’ll cover topics such as:

  • Data reporting and visualization
  • Drones and how they can work for media
  • Content engagement across all platforms
  • Digital content management
  • Content rights and ownership; accessing public records
  • Teaching solutions journalism
  • Community involvement and education

WHO: For those with at least 5 years of advising experience, especially those who have participated in previous workshops, courses or institutes. This workshop is not for beginners. Diversity in your school is a plus.

WHAT: One-week on-campus workshop, CEUs or graduate credit available.

WHEN: Mid-July 2022 (exact dates pending)

WHERE: Kent State University, Kent, Ohio

HOW: Competitive application process. Up to 25 current teachers/advisers will be selected and have their transportation, registration, food and housing expenses covered. If you have questions, send an email to cbowen@kent.edu
