“Good journalism education prepares students for the workforce, because it gets them into the world. Few other majors offer the hands-on experience that a good journalism school like ours can provide. Our students leave this place with a portfolio of work, and with connections in the community. This is a great time to get into our profession, because producers of good content have more independence than ever. Students can reach an audience almost immediately—they don’t need to wait for some big publisher to give them permission. Digital tools allow everyone to have a studio on their laptop. Students have a lot of freedom, and our school encourages them to run with that independence." Larry Abramson

The best practice is always to get consent (and if you can’t, consider creating your own alternative). You may be able to...

She traveled with the New York Times reporter to Liberia. When Nick Kristof announced back in February that I had won his Win-A-Trip contest, the first thing most of my friends said to me was congratulations, almost immediately followed by requests for the inside take on how a Times columnist gathers material.
