Live From Nashville: EWA’s 67th National Seminar
I’ve often made the case that there’s no reporting beat where the reporters are more collegial – or more committed to their work - than education. EWA’s 67th National Seminar, hosted by Vanderbilt University, helped to prove that point.
While we all learned a lot over the three days in Nashville, it’s fair to say we also had a lot of fun doing it. There were frank conversations, spirited debates, and hands-on workshops to help reporters deepen their skills and knowledge. We heard from academics, campus leaders, classroom practitioners and thought leaders. The undercurrent through it all: Never has it been more important to have high-quality education reporting informing the public.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing guest posts by some of the journalists who joined us at Vanderbilt. (You’ll find guest posts from our community members over on the Ed Beat blog.) We’ll also have video and podcasts of some of the most popular sessions. To get us started, here are links to posts from our keynote speakers:
- U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
- Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam
- Columbia Journalism School Dean Emeritus Nicholas Lemann
- American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten
