If you work with college media, you know they’re facing the same challenges and pressures as professional news outlets. But even knowing that, it’s difficult to guide student journalists to take the next steps. How do you help them respond and try to think about — and create — the best in new media storytelling?
As students and educators head back to the classroom, our #EdShift chat on Twitter on Tuesday, Aug. 18, will explore how to develop student media across a variety of platforms, as well as how to convince students to get on board with these changes. Join us at 1 p.m. Eastern Time / 12 p.m. Central Time / 10 a.m. Pacific Time as we discuss how those who work with student media can help students think differently about how they’re providing information to a campus audience.
The chat will be moderated by Stacy Forster of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and guests will include Dan Reimold of St. Joseph’s University, Nadia White of the University of Montana, Jake Batsell of Southern Methodist University, David Simpson of Georgia Southern University, Kenna Griffin of Oklahoma City University and more.
If you’re interested in learning more on this topic, there will be a DigitalEd training with Dan Reimold on Aug. 26 on how to build a student media powerhouse on digital, mobile and social. Sign up here!
Here is a Storify of the conversation.
