This panel proposes to explore the benefits -- expected and unexpected -- to themselves, their students and local news organizations when full-time faculty members choose to either continue working part time in a local newsroom, take a sabbatical to work in a newsroom full time or get a grant to work in a newsroom during the summer. What are the results when faculty are participant-observers in the digital revolution that is transforming modern newsrooms? How does it make their careers, their teaching and their research more relevant? What voice do they bring to newsrooms that often look askance at "the ivory tower''?
Moderator: Tim F. Brown, University of Central Florida
