Welcome back to SMU, and welcome to Digital Journalism! I look forward to navigating the digital jungle with you this semester.
Here’s a short self-profile I produced for the Video Journalism Movement soon after I started teaching at SMU. Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time visiting newsrooms to conduct research on how audience engagement is changing journalism as well as best practices in the business of digital news.
I also invite you to follow me on Twitter and Instagram, as well as our still-developing class Twitter list.
