The College of Communication and Information has created a series of high-impact, immersive educational experiences that debuts this upcoming spring semester. The “Media and Movements” initiative will enable CCI undergraduate and graduate students to apply their communication, research, multimedia storytelling, design, advocacy, data, information and knowledge management skills to significant and highly relevant social issues.
Multimedia Storytelling, new to JMC this spring, provides students with a deeper understanding of the best ways to tell stories in different media. The course builds on skills learned in other JMC courses and helps students develop a multimedia mindset in their approach to storytelling and reporting.
Students will learn and practice storytelling, reporting and editing techniques using writing, audio, video, and photography. They will also practice online content management by posting their stories to a class website and will promote their content using social media tools.
