EWA Higher Ed Seminar: Background Reading on College Affordability

EWA will be in Indianapolis Friday and Saturday for our annual Higher Education Seminar for journalists, focusing on issues around college affordability. Degrees vs. Debt: Making College More Affordable, is hosted by the Indiana University School of Education and Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis.

If you can’t make it to Indianapolis, don’t worry. We’ll have videos from the sessions available online, along with multimedia materials from the various presentations. But we’ve also put together a resources page so that you can also get up to speed on the topics — and learn more about the presenters — ahead of the seminar.

Speaking of resources, EWA’s new News Topics site is a great place to start if you’re digging for details about a current education topic, looking for expert sources, or curious about the latest research and coverage. You can find out about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathemetics) education, classroom technology, and a wealth of other topics. We’re adding new topics regularly, so be sure to bookmark the page.
