The midwinter meeting of the AEJMC Scholastic Journalism Division is getting underway at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg.

Members of the division from across the country will be there for two days of discussion about journalism education at the high school and collegiate levels.

We’ll have guest speakers Kenny Irby (Poynter) and Jeff Klinkenberg (Tampa Bay Times) and will have our own sessions on journalism curriculum revision, the impact of Hazelwood on college media, and a sharing of apps for teaching and learning. Research related to scholastic journalism also will be shared.

You can follow our sessions, as I’ll be blogging during the meeting with the assistance of Gator students who are attending and colleague Judy Robinson.
