During the fall semester of 2020, Poynter worked to understand the needs and wants of journalism educators across the country. What we heard back was clear: You need relevant examples of new scenarios to engage with your students — and you need them to be fast.
Enter Professor’s Press Pass, a series of case studies, classroom discussions and assignments designed to infuse freshness and engagement into your curriculum.
Professor’s Press Pass isn’t a replacement for your lessons. It’s a supplement to what you already know works for your students.
These bite-sized lessons — available on a subscription basis — should get your students engaged in the process of doing journalism and thinking critically about the pressing issues facing our industry. The examples range from print to broadcast to radio to online, from ethics to law to leadership.
Plus, we’ll add at least one new piece each week, so you’re always sure to have something fresh to discuss or assign.
