Register by June 26 to receive a complimentary T-shirt.

JEA Advisers Institute brings journalism teachers from across the country together for a week of adviser-specific training and networking.

Participants learn from other teachers, as well as industry partners and experts, so that advisers return to their schools with enhanced tools that strengthen their CTE programs.

All JEA spaces and events require participants to display professional behavior that is safe and inclusive of everyone. We look forward to your attendance.


Monday’s event is the first conference session starting at 8 p.m. (registration check-in starts at 7:30 p.m.). On Tuesday, the general session starts at 8:30 a.m., and breakout sessions start at 10 a.m and end at 5 p.m. On Wednesday, all attendees will participate in our team storytelling workshop. This all-day event gets everyone out of the hotel to experience Providence. The conference ends by noon on Thursday.

LOCATION - Omni Providence Hotel

The Omni Providence Hotel is the official hotel of JEA Advisers Institute and features world-class amenities and accommodations. Connected to Providence Place Mall and Rhode Island Convention Center, Omni Providence Hotel is conveniently located near top destinations in downtown Providence including Brown University, Providence College, Rhode Island School of Design and the Amica Mutual Pavilion. The charming Rhode Island hotel offers elevated accommodations with sweeping views of the downtown skyline. We encourage all attendees to stay at the Omni Providence Hotel, which will house all conference activities.

Hotel rates are $189 for singles/doubles, $219 for triples and $249 for quads, plus taxes and service fees. Reserve by June 24, 2024 for conference pricing.

JEA will help make connections for those interested in a roommate to save on lodging costs, but JEA will not make the roommate pairings. Even if you have already made your hotel reservation, it can be modified for a double room, and the Omni is capable of arranging split billing. One roommate would have to put down a credit card for incidentals, but the Omni can split the bill, or one roommate can reimburse the other. Email if you are open to a roommate.


Regardless of your experience level or the type of media you advise, Advisers Institute has programming specifically for you:

  • differentiated instruction strategies
  • technology in the classroom
  • subject-specific professional learning community participation
  • essential learner outcomes in a 21st-century classroom
  • media literacy, ethical journalism
  • preparation and testing for Certified Journalism Educator and Master Journalism Educator status — testing takes place Thursday after the closing ceremony; registration deadline for certification testing is June 15.
