I mentioned this briefly in class on Monday but wanted to fill you in on some of the details … the Department of Journalism is making a bigger push into giving our students the digital skills they need to become better storytellers. Two years ago we launched a series of video tutorials on Digital Literacy for Journalists.
Starting this fall, the department is requiring students to have their own audio recorders and digital cameras (basic ones, not the DSLRs we will be using in this class). To compliment the videos, we are also running a series of eight workshops to answer technical questions on technology.
So, now you know.
