For the first time, the Education Writers Association presents a series of hour-long sessions with education researchers from across the country to help journalists incorporate research and data more effectively into their coverage. Along with their lunch – or brunch – EWA encourages attendees to bring their questions and concerns about education data and research.
Our first brown bag lunch – actually a brunch – will take place in Washington, D.C. Spend the mid-morning with veteran education researchers from the Institute of Education Sciences (IES).
During this session, journalists will gain valuable tools and information to benefit their education overage, including:
- Connections with analysts from the National Center for Education Research (NCER) and the National Center for Education Evaluation (NCEE) and Regional Assistance division of IES.
- Guidance on how to navigate the NCEE/ NCER site.
- Tips for finding reports and resources that are relevant to today’s political climate.
- Learning how to mine the data and research from IES to give more heft to your stories.
- An opportunity to mark their calendars for future events that could be helpful to education reporters.
Pack and bring your lunch and come connect with researchers from IES! Coffee and light refreshments will be served. Preregistration is required to attend.
Location: EWA Office, 1825 K Street, Lower Level Conference Room.
Please notify the front desk of your arrival and you will be directed to the event space.
We hope to see you there!
