Teachapalooza VII (June 2017)
Teachapalooza is the place to catch up, power up and re-ignite your passion for teaching. Join us June 2-4, 2017, at the Poynter campus in St. Petersburg, Fla., for three fast-paced days of relevant, cut-to-the-chase learning for journalism educators.
This year, our lineup includes Pulitzer Prize winner David Fahrenthold, a political reporter for The Washington Post honored for “persistent reporting that created a model for transparent journalism in political campaign coverage while casting doubt on Donald Trump’s assertions of generosity toward charities.” We will also be offering a special event with Fahrenthold on Thursday, June 1. To receive updates about that event, please fill out this form.
Teachapalooza will get you up-to-date on the technology and trends that shape journalism, show you the latest ways educators are using innovation in their classrooms and focus on data storytelling and new storytelling platforms. Even more, you’ll join a lasting community of journalism educators who share your passion for shaping the next generation of journalists.
At Teachapalooza you’ll learn:
- How newsrooms are using social media, and how you can teach with these tools
- Fact-checking and fake news detectors
- The latest on drones, virtual reality and 360-video
We will inspire your teaching with our Show and Share sessions taught by YOU, the participants who share the coolest new ideas you are trying out in your classrooms.
Who Will Benefit:
College educators who teach journalism, communication, advertising, public relations, television, radio, online and social media classes.
You will learn from several guest speakers and faculty, including Poynter’s own:
Al Tompkins, Senior Faculty, Broadcast and Online
Kristen Hare, Local News Innovation Reporter for Poynter.org
Alexios Mantzarlis, Director/Editor, International Fact-Checking Network
Kelly McBride, Vice President
