The Education Writers Association will hold its 76th National Seminar in Atlanta, Georgia, June 1-4. As part of this year’s theme, “Looking Back, Moving Forward,” EWA will examine the history of civil rights in education, and we will look ahead. The event will also examine the continued aftermath of the pandemic on learning at all levels as well as other education issues making news. Leading researchers, policymakers and practitioners will share insights on these pressing issues, and experienced journalists will share tips and advice. Attendees will leave equipped to better cover the 2023-24 academic year and beyond. Winners and finalists for the 2022 National Awards for Education Reporting will be recognized. The conference is open to EWA journalist members, supporting community members, and student members who pre-register. If you’re not a member and wish to participate in this exclusive opportunity to hear from some of the most important movers and shakers in the education and journalism world, it only takes a few minutes to join EWA. (Membership is free for journalists and students.)
Dart Center's Research Director Elana Newman will be speaking on the panel "Tools for Healing: How Can Journalists Cope With Trauma on the Beat" on June 3 at 1:30pm EST.
