…from Maria Maisto, New Faculty Majority and NFM Foundation are proud to invite NFM members to participate in an interactive one hour webinar, Alert the Press: Media 101 for Contingent Faculty Activists and Allies on Monday, September 24, 2012 at 12 noon EASTERN time (11 am Central/10 am Mountain/9 am Pacific).
Activists and other advocates for contingent faculty often express concern that the press do not report about contingent faculty issues widely or well. Yet better coverage will only take place when we learn how to work more effectively with the media. This webinar will provide basic information about how "the press" operates, describe common mistakes that we make when trying to pitch stories, provide information, or give interviews, and offer some suggestions for working productively with reporters and editors.Featuring Scott Jaschik, Editor, Inside Higher Ed
