The Concussion Legacy Foundation Media Project's Concussion Reporting Workshop is a curriculum for university journalism programs to train the next generation of sports media professionals.
We partnered with Qstream, an interactive spaced-learning microlearning platform with a proven track record in improving performance in the healthcare and sales industries, to develop a set of questions to test your concussion reporting knowledge. Students at collaborating schools can take a 21-question challenge to test their knowledge on the basics of concussion, how to properly describe concussions, what should happen during in-game concussion evaluations, and what to expect after a concussion is diagnosed. Students are given the challenge before and after the Concussion Reporting Workshop to assess the growth in their concussion reporting fluency.
The Workshop is a three-hour session that includes:
- Why good concussion reporting matters.
- How the media has helped change the concussion culture over the last decade.
- How changing the concussion culture will help protect athletes’ health.
- Our 22 core lessons on accurate and responsible concussion reporting.
- Video examples of concussion coverage for students to practice with.
