In our recent survey on the state of journalism education, we found that there's a still a wide gap between academics and professionals about the value of a journalism degree.
96 percent of educators think a journalism degree is extremely important for understanding the value of journalism, but half of recent graduates think journalism education is failing to keep up with industry changes.
We are celebrating summer with a weekend of savings on the great e-learning available at Poynter's NewsU. For three days only, you can get half off one, two or three courses or Webinars with our promo code 13PSUME53.

On Aug. 8, we released the results of our 2013 survey on the future of journalism education. We asked more than 1,800 journalism educators, media professionals and students what they thought about journalism education now and its prospects for the future.
We've assembled a white paper with detailed findings, related articles and research. The State of Journalism Education 2013 is available for download as a PDF.
A year ago, you told us what you thought about the value and the future of journalism education. Given the disruption and turmoil that journalism and education have faced in the last year, we want to know whether attitudes have changed. So we're asking for your help with a new survey.
We love language. And we love holidays. So a holiday about grammar gets twice as much of our love. Join NewsU and Poynter.org as we celebrate the joys of word choice, parts of speech and sentence structure all day on Monday, March 4.
Roy Peter Clark, the author of “The Glamour of Grammar,” will keynote the day with his new Webinar, This Ain’t Your Grandma’s Grammar: 4 Concepts to Improve Your Reading and Writing Forever.
Paul Pohlman is one of the unsung heroes of Poynter’s e-learning project, News University.
Like many heroes, Paul did not see his role as being heroic. Or even very important. Yet I’m convinced that Poynter NewsU would not have been as successful without Paul’s quiet guidance, enthusiastic support and good humor.
He made a difference when it came to Poynter’s future for many reasons.
With all the news out of the Middle East, we thought you’d like to have these e-learning resources handy should you need them in your reporting or teaching:
Covering Islam in America: Learn the religious, social, political and geographical facts about Islam so you can tackle stories with confidence and context.
Religion, Culture and Society: Getting Beyond the Cliches: Religion intersects nearly every story you cover. Learn how to tell those stories with greater context, skill and thoughtfulness.
Handling Race and Ethnicity: Examine whether and how to use racial and ethnic descriptions in news stories.
Reporting on Religion and Political Candidates: Learn best practices to execute solid stories about the faith of political candidates.
Enjoy the learning.
We're wrapping up our Five Fridays campaign with special savings on courses by Poynter faculty. As a bonus, we're extending the savings throughout the Labor Day weekend.
