Let’s meet at ONA10

October 26, 2010

This weekend, the Online News Association‘s 2010 conference will flood the Washington with web journalists, designers, coders, social media leaders, online producers and many others involved in online journalism. I heard there’s some large-scale gathering happening, but journalists aren’t allowed to go.

I’m one of the happy ONA volunteers so if you see me passing out name tags or gift bags on Saturday, say Hi!

Otherwise, find me at these sessions. I’d love to connect!

Update: I’d like to point out these two sessions with two of my Medill profs.

Rewiring the Ivory Tower
Revamping journalism curriculum is a tricky tightrope walk, balancing digital skills, academics and computer science. How do accrediting standards and the arms race for shorter degrees set the boundaries for the new journalism degree? Panelists share what is being lost and what is being gained.
With David Johnson, American University
Emily Bell, Columbia University
Rich Gordon, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University
and Mindy McAdams, University of Florida

Forging Pro-Am Partnerships
With newsrooms cutting staff and journalism schools booming, it was bound to happen – the news industry is collaborating with academe for content in brave new ways. The panel explores how the partnerships work and whether the model applies to your newsroom.
With Joe Bergantino, New England Center for Investigative Reporting
Rich Jones, New York University, Arthur L. Carter Journalism Initiative
and Josh Meyer, National Security Journalism Initiative, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University
