New Sessions and Workshops Announced



While BEA conferences are traditionally co-located with the NAB Show each April.  NAB will not meet in April 2021, but has announced a Las Vegas convention in October 2021. We’re looking into possible partnership opportunities, but it’s too early to say whether or what that might be. Stay tuned….and meanwhile, let’s plan for a great (virtual) BEA 2021.

Dr. George L. Daniels has been named the Broadcast Education Association’s inaugural Faculty Fellow of Diversity and Inclusion.

Dr. Daniels is a national leader and established scholar on issues related to race, gender, and diversity, across the professional fields of journalism and media and within the related disciplines of higher education. His research and peer-reviewed publications span more than twenty years and include a litany of competitive papers, journal articles, and book chapters.

From 2013-19, Dr. Daniels served as Assistant Dean for Administration and chief diversity officer for the University of Alabama’s College of Communication and Information Sciences. In 2016, his college received the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication’s Equity and Diversity Award. Reflecting on this recognition, Daniels published an article in BEA’s Journal of Media Education, titled “Closing the Assessment Loop on Programmatic Diversity Planning for Accreditation,” in which he outlined some of the initiatives and strategies employed by the College—and stressed “the importance of not only having diversity goals, but also gathering data to be used as a basis for improvement.” Read More…

BEA2021 Will Be Virtual in April 2021

BEA2021 will be a fully virtual conference. The great news is that because we reached this decision in early September, we have lots of time to make BEA2021 a strong, unique, valuable virtual experience. Paper and panel submitters can move forward with confidence, knowing that they’ll be participating in a virtual format, and not worrying about travel risks or expenses. 

We are pleased to announce that the BEA2021 panel and paper submission site is up and running!  To best accommodate participants in our virtual conference, the panel submission deadline is a little later than usual: Friday, October 9th.
