  • How to use digital educational resources to enhance learning
  • How to shift to open, mobile and social assignments

  • Groups you should join to associate with other digital educators
  • Ideas for conducting live news experiments with open, collaborative teams

We will explore examples from Searchlights and Sunglasses, Field Notes from the Digital Age of Journalism, an e-book that is both a call for change in journalism education and an example of that change. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter at the hashtag #edshift.
