I’m back teaching Multimedia Reporting and so that means it’s time to resurrect my Word Press blog. It’s been several semesters since I last taught the class. I took a break from teaching the class because the last time I taught it — Fall 2011 — only 4 students were enrolled. Thank goodness the Dean didn’t cancel the class. But I was a little dishearten that more students did not sign up, especially because I personally believe the future of journalism is in multimedia reporting. So this semester, I have the opposite problem — and a problem I would prefer to have. The class is over capacity. I have 12 students, many who are journalism minors and editors for the school newspaper, the Pauw Wow. It should be a great semester, despite the fact that we don’t have enough equipment for all my students. But that belongs in a future blog post.
So let the semester begin! One of their first assignments was to take pictures and tweet their favorite picture; the one picture that they believed best represented the snow-covered campus. Here are a couple of cool (no pun intended) examples: Hashtag #DeepFreeze.
