We're in the middle of a big week at Poynter NewsU: Fun at Work Week and Back to School at AEJMC.
What connects these projects? They're both about the future of journalism: the culture that will help newsrooms succeed and the training that will shape the next generation of journalists.
Fun at Work Week features Webinars, articles and interactive challenges focused on helping you build the kind of culture in which creativity, innovation and, ultimately, your business, can flourish.
As we start the countdown to our 10th birthday bash in April, we've been asking our 300,000 users to share a story about how NewsU has transformed you.
We are honored to hear from everyone who's shared so far. From producers and writers, to professor and publishers. You can read all the stories at www.newsu.org/stories/.
If you haven't had a chance to share your story, there's still time.
By telling us your story, you'll help us show the scope and impact of NewsU's e-learning.
Forget Black Friday and skip Cyber Monday. The holiday shopping season tradition continues on Tuesday, Dec. 3, with NewsU's Training Tuesday. This is a chance to give yourself the gift of training.
All day on Tuesday, Dec. 3, you get 25 percent off all of our Webinars, video tutorials and self-directed courses that have a fee. You can purchase as many items as your shopping cart will hold. The more you buy, the more you save.

NewsU is better than going back to school for reporters. This month, gear up for fall by joining any of our new reporting courses and Webinars. From telling investigative stories on a deadline to reporting on the Affordable Care Act, we can help you tackle important topics with accuracy and context.
Our Labor Day Sale ends Tuesday. Use code 13LABOR50B and save 50 percent on up to five courses--plus get another special offer later this fall.
We know it's tough to stay ahead in these competitive times. So NewsU is here to help. From writing and reporting techniques, to social media and mobile skills, to innovation and entrepreneurial strategies, our on-demand courses can give you the edge you need.
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.
Updated Aug. 8, 2013
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.
