Today's J-School

PressThink has this post reporting on a recent conference of J-school professors, including two from UMD. The first is Maureen Beasley (who, I think teaches only one course - women in the media - and whom I've never had), and Carl Sessions Stepp, who teaches a range of classes and though I've only had him once, has continued to look out for me and offer encouragement in my years as a journalism student. He's also very well-respected in the industry and his wife, Laura, writes for the Style section of The Post.
