It’s been three full years since I taught journalism at Temple University, but I’m back in the swing of things. This semester, I’ve got two full sections of seniors in various stages of boredom and panic.
We’ll be working on multimedia storytelling — telling complete, visually appealing news stories and publishing them to websites students will make for themselves.
We’ll discuss everything from what constitutes “multimedia” to how to find sources on social media. And of course, we’ll be doing. Because that’s what journalism is about.
I hope to bring in a few guest speakers, which is something I wish I’d done more of last time around, and I hope I can help the students understand how valuable what they’re about to learn will be for them.
