What Good Is Journalism

Posted by Jen Lee Reeves on September 8, 2008

KOMU is broadcasting a series analyzing what makes good journalism. The title comes from George Kennedy and Daryl Moen’s book with the same title. The first segment looked at Walter William’s Creed and the role it has played in journaism for 100 years.

Visit this link to see the story. I was really impressed to hear what some of the students had to say about our role as journalists in society.

The Columbia Missourian put together a fantastic guide to this week’s events for the centennial. Click here to see the guide and all of its offerings (I also included a link to it on the right hand side of this website).

Training about blogging

Posted by Jen Lee Reeves on September 6, 2008

I spent the morning and early afternoon training a portion of our blogging teams. Our freshmen honors students have a chance to blog, shoot video and photography using a blog… For many, it’s a new experience.

We discussed tone… What is the appropriate way to talk to you, the reader. We discussed how to use our blog system, shooting video and places we can upload all of our content. It’s a HUGE process and I look forward to finding out how much content we really can collect during the big centennial event.

I’m lucky to have a small group of undergraduate students who will help me go through all of the media we collect and continue to add video and photos beyond the event. It’s an opportunity I haven’t had before. In most cases I attend a big event, blog, shoot photos and video and make sure it all gets uploaded before the event ends. I’ve found in most cases there is no chance to focus on that material after the event ends. Luckily I have extra hands to help me this time around. I hope we can go through all of the content we gather, classify and distribute it in as many ways we can think of. It should be fun!

If you plan on attending the centennial, leave a comment! Share a link where you plan to blog or tweet about this big week. The more the merrier!
