Two Options for Journalism Advisers at JMW


Learn Alongside Your Students

The Jayhawk Media Workshop welcomes advisers to a four-day experience of learning, sharing time with fellow advisers and watching their students learn.

The cost for the adviser workshop is $300 plus lodging expenses.

Advisers are invited to join the workshop instructors in staying at Hampton Inn Lawrence, where we have reserved a discounted block of rooms. Just tell them you’re attending the Jayhawk Media Workshop. (Advisers are not able to attend the workshop by staying at the student residence halls.)

Advisers wishing to commute to the workshop from home are welcome to attend as well. The same cost of $300 for workshop registration applies to commuting advisers. Lunch is included in the cost of registration.

Option 1

We invite advisers to join their students in sharpening their journalism skills in one of our courses targeted at students. Advisers could choose to learn new skills in video, broadcast, design, yearbook, reporting or photography. How great would it be to know how to use studio lights in photography? Or how to produce a news show in our Media Crossroads lab? You can be there, right beside your students, learning these new skills.

Option 2

We are again offering an Advising course for the workshop, allowing you to gather with fellow teachers. Led by an experienced and award-winning adviser, this session will encourage you to share your best teaching resources and learn from the experiences of teachers from other schools.

Please contact us at if you have any questions.
