This is a research and practice-based course on social media, aimed at journalists who will need to understand and use social media. Students will research historical and contemporary innovation relating to social media, and will then develop strategies for creating impact throughout the course of the semester with their own journalistic projects using social media. Readings, discussions, project critiques, and hands-on work will all be used methodologically to allow students to delve into the possibilities of social media. Students will come to understand the power and limitations of social media as both a reporting tool and a tool to aid in the marketing of powerful journalism.
