The Society of Professional Journalists understands that changes in the industry have forced educators to rethink and revise curricula. They are being asked or required to help students learn about everything thats new while still teaching the reporting and writing skills that serve as the foundation of journalism. Institutions of higher learning are breaking their budgets to keep up with new software, new hardware and new gadgets. The job of a journalism educator is more demanding than ever before.
Just know that you are not alone. And the Society of Professional Journalists is there to help.
