Digital Education on a Shoestring

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In many small academic programs, we are required to teach a wide-ranging set of skills, often with minimal budgets for equipment and tech support. Many of us come to the classroom with a professional background that emphasizes print. Or perhaps we have audio experience, or video – but not all three. How do we ensure that our programs stay cutting edge? How do we maintain our own skills as journalism educators? How do we support our students in developing skills for the professional arenas they will enter? Come to this moderated conversation with your questions, challenges and examples of your biggest successes and failures. We will brainstorm, share syllabi, share what worked – and what did not. Leave with some new strategies and tools to try in the classroom.
