On Wednesday, May 27, our #EdShift chat on Twitter will cover how media outlets and professionals are using social channels to post original content. Along with a rise in the number of adults who get their news from social media sites, emerging tools such as Facebook’s Instant Articles suggest there’s no slowing down this trend. But how can this practice be best implemented and what does it mean for journalism education?
Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern Time / 12 p.m. Central Time / 10 a.m. Pacific Time as we discuss why this original content sets journalists and students apart and tips and tricks for doing it right.
The chat will be moderated by as usual by MediaShift’s Education Curator Katy Culver, with special guests Dale Blasingame of Texas State University, Steve Buttry of Louisiana State University, Andrew DeVigal of the University of Oregon, Dan Reimold of St. Joseph’s University and Stacy Forster of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. A Storify of the chat will be added to this page after the chat.
