Advising publications has been the lifeblood of my career. I love practicing the craft of journalism myself, but coaching, encouraging and guiding others to hone their skills within a responsible and ethical framework is both rewarding and necessary in today’s culture and media landscape.
For 2017-2018, I will be advising the EIU Warbler yearbook.
As an early step toward advising, a colleague and I created a self-directed, online ethics training for student media staff members. We hope it creates a solid foundation for the strong journalists we need at the college level and beyond.
For both the high school newspaper and yearbook I advised, I designed the full curriculum, including all pieces of the instructional design.
