As online education hits a more mature point, journalism programs are offering a range of distance-learning courses. But how do you effectively translate the in-class experience to the web, especially when teaching something like writing leads?
On Tuesday, Aug. 4th, our #EdShift chat on Twitter will explore the different ways journalism is being taught online, from such standards as media ethics and news writing to entire degree and certificate programs. Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern Time / 12 p.m. Central Time / 10 a.m. Pacific Time as we discuss how educators engage students from a distance and facilitate learning online, as well as share the best practices for making it a positive experience for students.
The chat will be moderated by Stacy Forster of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and guests will include Dan Gillmor of Arizona State University, Tom Zeller of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Kym Fox of Texas State University, Sarah Smith-Frigerio and Amy Simons of the University of Missouri, Tara Golshan, a recent graduate of UW-Madison, and more.
