Tips for Teaching Hybrid Multimedia Skills Courses

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Instructors of skills courses in journalism and related programs have learned some important lessons in the pandemic for teaching everything from video to writing as a hybrid class experience. It was universally difficult and the preference would almost certainly always be to teach similar courses in person. However, there are things we improvised, things we discovered were actually meaningful, and things we learned could be included in any version of future courses. This panel will include a variety of people who taught through the pandemic, including important skills courses, to talk about successes, lessons for the future, and creative tools for improvising and problem-solving going forward.
