Come to the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism for J-Day 2016, a day of journalism education on the UM campus. Co-sponsored by the College and the Maryland-DC Scholastic Press Association, the event will include a keynote address from two-time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Dana Priest, sessions on print, broadcast and online journalism, tours, and panels of current University journalism students.
J-Day 2015 was a blast, and MDCSPA has worked to make this year’s event even better. We’ve added a teacher boxed luncheon in Knight Hall to allow advisers to network and mingle. We’ve added two two-hour computer lab session in In Design to elevate the design of your publication. The event will end earlier for those groups that have to get back to school earlier – and we’ve made the change while still including all the elements teachers and students enjoyed last year.
Space at J-Day 2016 is limited. Last year, the convention filled up incredibly quickly. Make plans and register your group soon to guarantee your space at the event. And come out for a great day at the University of Maryland. Click on the J-Day link in the menu bar to find all the information you’ll need to plan your day and to register. We look forward to seeing you and your students on October 28.
