Dig in and learn today

Written by Jim Jordan

One of the greatest ways to expand your knowledge of journalism and find new inspiration is to attend as many of the sessions as you can at this convention.

My students and I always gather as a staff late at night and spend a few minutes planning the sessions I think they should attend the next day. I also have them take notes to share with the staff on special notepaper I provide. I require that each student attend at least eight sessions and one keynote during the course of the convention.

Have a great day today by totally immersing yourself in all the convention has to offer
