Clear Communication: Syllabus Policies During and Post Pandemic
Syllabi are important in presenting students with a clear explanation of the course and how to complete it successfully. This year was challenging for faculty as each course syllabus had to be reviewed to reflect the need for flexibility during the pandemic. Panel participants will discuss whether they were able to keep course policies, such as those for late work, attendance and extra credit, consistent with pre-pandemic syllabi statements or if they adapted those policies to accommodate the changing learning environment caused by Covid-19. Panelists will also discuss how this unexpected pandemic driven review impacts their thinking about syllabi and policies moving forward.

The 2022 BEA Festival of Media Arts: Everything you wanted to know about entering and getting involved, but were afraid to ask
Thousands of dollars in prizes, recognition from your peers and a swanky awards ceremony - those are only a few of the reasons to enter BEA's premiere creative competition! But the breadth of work that can be entered is staggering and sometimes figuring out how to complete an entry can be a bit intimidating. This panel provides you with an opportunity to learn about each competition in the Festival directly from the competition chairs and to ask questions about the process. Additionally, we'll talk about the history of the Festival, the judging process and the acceptance rates - things you can incorporate into your promotion and tenure efforts.

Mini-Symposium: Triaging the Streaming Wars Panel: The Streamable Text: Viewer Engagement + Social Significance
This text-based panel examines streaming media from the vantage point of producers, directors, writers, and audience members. Examining a range of programming choices distributed by such streaming services as Prime, Netflex, Hulu, Acorn, ESPN, and Britbox, the panelists employ rhetorical, historical, cultural, visual, and critical methods to analyze the series’ production strategies, viewer reception, and social significance. Following formal presentations, the panelists will also engage with such questions as the following: How is streaming similar to and different from television broadcasting? What audiences are excluded from the streaming experience, and why? How can independent producers and media entrepreneurs participate in production and distribution of streaming content? Does streaming accelerate or contain the creative process? What is the “formula” for success in the streaming environment?

Glenda Balas, University of North Texas at Dallas, Moderator
 
Greg Luft, Colorado State University—"Detectives Streaming on the World Stage: How International Crime Fiction Can Unintentionally Improve Our Grasp of Character Development, Production Techniques, Culture, and Geography.” This presentation examines a broad range of international detective series streaming on such services as Netflix, Prime, Hulu, Acorn, and Britbox. Originating in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, and featuring such diverse languages as Finnish, Polish, French, and Spanish, these programs demonstrate both differences and similarities with U.S. crime drama and offer a bird’s eye view of geography through new technologies.
 
Sue Balter-Reitz, Montana State University Billings—"Psychedelia in The Queen’s Gambit.” Set in the late 1950s and early 1960s, The Queen’s Gambit provides viewers with a visual argument about life in mid-century America. This paper uses visual rhetorical analysis to analyze psychedelic imagery as a driver of the narrative of the Netflix series.
 
John McGuire, Oklahoma State University--“ ‘Where's My Game?’ The Migration of Sports to Streaming Services.” This paper discusses the transition of popular sports content to streaming services. The presentation highlights ESPN+ and its Big 12 Now service, as well as other major sports properties such as NFL Sunday Ticket, as they move online.
 
Glenda Balas, University of North Texas at Dallas—“From Nordic Noir to Cultural Identity: Baltasar Kormákur’s Vision of Icelandic Storytelling.” Kormákur’s Icelandic portfolio includes crime fiction (Trapped), supernatural and science fiction (Katla), and noir-inspired thrillers (A Little Trip to Heaven). This auteur study examines how the director combines popular culture and grisly mystery with values of cultural identity, opposition to global capitalism, and preservation of the Icelandic language—all goals consistent with Icelandic public broadcasting and indigenous media production. 
 
Jared Bahir Browsh, University of Colorado—"A Spectrum of Possibilities: Representations of Neurodivergence on Hulu and Netflix.” Popular culture is one of the few areas where people who might not otherwise interact with those who have been diagnosed or identify as neurodivergent see it recognized and addressed. This presentation examines the evolution of neurodivergent portrayals and investigates what can be done to better represent conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Integrating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Classroom: Steps to Take for Better Representation in Journalism Education
In light of recent increases in racially motivated crimes against minorities and growing social justice movements in the United States, journalists are recognizing the need to diversify their own content, sources, and newsrooms. Truly multiperspectival news relies on journalists and newsroom management covering their communities with credibility, balance, nuance, and cultural awareness and sensitivity.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts should not begin in the newsroom, however. Journalism classrooms across the nation must turn their attention to DEI-related subjects in order to better prepare students to be more culturally aware and focused on inclusive journalistic practices. This panel addresses how broadcast educators can work to incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion practices in their curriculum.

Panelists will discuss the importance of these efforts for the field of journalism, individual student success (both professionally and personally), and more inclusive campus cultures. The moderator and panelists below will share their experience working with university DEI-related initiatives, incorporating diversity and inclusion in their media classrooms and student newsrooms. Attendees of the panel will leave with suggestions and actionable steps to provide more inclusive curriculum designs for their courses and ways to encourage a DEI focus in their programs, departments, and universities.

Reigniting Student Media: Rebuilding Membership Post Pandemic
The COVID-19 Pandemic brought many complications to the world of student media. University radio stations around the world relied on a skeleton crew of members broadcasting shows in the studio or from their homes, while others were forced to rely solely on automation and/or pre-recorded programs. One of the biggest problems these media outlets will face this academic year is the potential dip in student membership. The pandemic brought on a gap year of sorts with senior members graduating and little to no recruitment of new students due to campus restrictions. This panel seeks to provide recommendations and strategies for reigniting student media and boosting recruitment efforts for university radio stations post-pandemic.

Increasing awareness of mental health for faculty and students post-pandemic
The issue of health care has been on the national agenda for some time, but not until the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in the United States did the issue of mental health come to the forefront of public awareness. The CDC recently released a report showing increases in teen and young adult suicide attempts in 2020-2021 compared to the previous year. Universities across the world are reporting increases in student mental health services. As students recover from loss of loved ones due to COVID-19, isolation from quarantines, and changing expectations of in-person versus virtual learning, both students and faculty need to increase awareness of mental health issues and resources in the upcoming year. This panel will explore research, advice, and initiatives to incorporate mental health awareness across campus.

Connecting New Channels: Audience Engagement from practice to theory to pedagogy
The BBC states as one of its values: ‘We put audiences at the heart of everything we do’. This, coming from a broadcaster with strong paternalistic foundations, signalled the move from a unidirectional broadcaster to a symbiotic relationship with its consumers.
Linfoot (2011) dates the shift from paternalism to populism in the creation of BBC Local Radio in 1967, however the BBC’s early productions of phone-in and discussion programmes were carefully choreographed. Letters from listeners and viewers were read and discussed but rarely did they have a direct impact on output. For decades broadcasters slowly progressed from telling the audience what they thought they should see or hear to what they thought they wanted to see and hear – and that guesswork continued, arguably, until the advent of social media where everyone with the access and knowledge could interact with broadcasters directly, both the organisations and individuals.
Engagement with an audience that has become more active than passive is a key factor in 21st century broadcasting, and our students must understand the complexities of serving diverse and organically changing audiences.
This panel will take a look from both sides of the Atlantic at:
Why people engage with broadcasters
What happens when the audience becomes the broadcaster
The visual turn in audience engagement, with a look at visual gatekeeping theory, and
How we teach students how to engage with audiences.

Pandemic, Prejudice and Positionality—Tactics for Teaching Race in 2021
In 2020, the race issue was the one thing that managed to shift the news media’s focus away from a once-in-a-century worldwide pandemic. Indeed, racial prejudice is one issue that has, in fact, been with us since before the last Pandemic. The race riots of the early 1900s pre-date the Spanish Flu of 1918. They led to the birth of organizations such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), which began in 1909 by a multicultural group of individuals determined to address the senseless murders of people of color. In similar fashion, a multicultural group of individuals is needed to facilitate learning about race in multiple instructional settings within the journalism and mass communication arena today.

As controversial as stories and statements about race may be, it is equally as complicated and confusing for instructors to determine the best way to deliver instruction on this particular type of diversity. Faculty in journalism and mass communication bear a heavy burden to “get it right” when they discuss race and racism in the classroom. Not only do students deal with their own development in understanding race and racism, they will also be preparers of messages for others who consume media. This panel addresses the several eminent aspects to teaching race in journalism and mass communication education based on their contributions to the edited volume Teaching Race: Struggles, Strategies, and Scholarship for the Mass Communication classroom, which will be released in August.

From Fatigue to Academic Investment: Helping Students Re-Engage with Their Studies
This roundtable will allow participants to discuss successful strategies to student engagement that can help students invest in their coursework this fall and acclimate to being in face-to-face classes again. Conversations with some students suggest that a number of them are dealing with pandemic burn-out, ZOOM fatigue, and loss of intellectual appetite and a zest for their college career.

These panelists--all recognized as outstanding teachers who bring great ideas and energy to their classes--will share their insights about this topic. Their presentations bring a range of approaches to the concept of student engagement in the post-pandemic era, including shared virtual space, collective problem-solving and creative production, new forms of journalistic storytelling, a focus on mental health, belief in the prospects of education, and renewed commitments by students to their major course of study.

Ngozi Akinro, Texas Wesleyan University—"When Burnout Sets In: Sustaining Student Engagement in a Virtual Space." This panelist explores some of the challenges that students experienced during the last year and a half and the steps she continues to take to maintain student engagement. Of particular interest are the role of digital tools, content diversity, and the place of the students in creating an engaged classroom.
 
Aphrodite Salas, Concordia University—“Journalism As an Approach to (Self) Knowledge.” Production skills are front and center in visual and multimedia journalism classes. As the pandemic wore on and hands-on teaching continued to be replaced by zoom sessions and instructional videos, students in this Canadian journalism program struggled to keep up. This panelist describes how a “flipped” approach to the positionality of first-year student journalists asked them “what is working and why” in relation to the pandemic experience in their home communities. This shift in the story’s central question—allowing students to both report and reflect—positioned them differently vis-a-vis the news they were covering and produced a more personalized, engaged perspective on social impacts of the pandemic.
 
Jason Balas, University of North Texas—“Poor Man’s Process: Teaching Interior Car Shots.” This panelist describes an interactive video workshop that trains students to shoot interior car shots with a non-moving auto. Students appreciate this “tricks of the trade” lesson because it is physically active, occurs outdoors, and involves the entire class (lighting, videography, casting, acting, sound, special effects, and editing). Importantly, the workshop teaches students to produce visual effects they frequently see in movies and television and reminds them why they have chosen the digital production major for their careers.
 
Desiree Hill, University of Central Oklahoma--“Mental Health Tune-up: Pandemic Phase Two.” The focus of this presentation are post-pandemic mental health challenges faced by students in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. The panelist focuses on best practices for recognizing, understanding, and addressing these mental health issues in the university setting. She also explores the post-pandemic “engaged classroom,” how it can be impacted by mental health concerns, and other pedagogical lessons of the pandemic that may/should be here to stay.
 
David Weiss, University of New Mexico—"Everything Old Is New Again: Engaging First-Semester Master’s Students at the Beginning of the Post-Pandemic Era.” Students beginning their graduate-school careers are usually bursting with energy and excitement, not to mention (more than) a bit of trepidation. This panelist explores additional, unprecedented challenges to engagement and success confronting new graduate students--and their instructors--when their first semester in grad school is also their first semester of on-campus classes in almost two years.
 
Glenda Balas, University of North Texas at Dallas—“Shedding Cynicism About Higher Ed: Helping Students See the Value of a College Education.” According to a recent study by marketing agency LaneTerralever, more than a third of prospective first year students at universities and almost half of new community college students are re-considering going to college. These students, most of whom spent 16 months at home and online due to the pandemic, are skeptical and even cynical about the value of college. This panelist discusses a career-planning activity for first-year communication students that asks them to identify what they “do not want” in their future. This exercise--which focuses on writing, critical thinking, and discussion—shifts the conversation from the “benefits” of college to a “risk analysis” of not earning a degree, an approach appreciated by many pragmatic, post-pandemic, first-year students seeking a good job.

Curriculum Changes - The Pros & Cons
The media industry is an ever-changing world; and for incoming students who are learning the media industry, their needs and learning strategies have changed as well. Various educational institutions have taken different approaches, including putting technology at the center of the curriculum and others that have pulled it out to specific classes.

This curriculum-focused panel will offer participants the opportunity to hear how programs have made changes to their curriculum to meet the needs of the industry, their students, and university. We will also discuss the future of curriculum and where programs may be heading.

101 Years of Radio: history, pedagogy and beyond
At last year’s BEA On-Location, we heard from an international group of contributors about interesting topics in the century of radio. This year, we’d like to expand on this historical perspective by introducing reflections on radio pedagogy (how you may have changed your approach to teaching over the last year during pandemic conditions) and other opportunities that have opened up your understanding or your approach to teaching radio. We would encourage participants in last year’s panel to bring an update on their research or contribute new presentations about their research into radio history.

Tips for Teaching Hybrid Multimedia Skills Courses
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.

Podcasting IS the New Broadcasting
Podcasting is now one of the fastest growing areas of broadcasting and one that is actively looking for new hires. It is also one of the more challenging areas to teach, since it is so rapidly changing and there are virtually no rules governing it. Podcasting IS the New Broadcasting will present a variety of methodologies being used to teach podcasting and integrate it into related areas of study and into the overall campus environment as both a practical and a promotional tool. The panel will also look at the wide variety of online - and free - professional-level resources available to create interactive and hands-on learning experiences for students, both as part of in-person and remote learning environments.

The Power of Partnerships
In a time of contracting budgets and staffing, many local news outlets are partnering with their local universities to produce storytelling projects of regional impact. Student journalists and professional journalists work together to produce public-facing work that shines a light on local problems or issues. We showcase and explore two examples of such recent projects from 2021: "The Road to Freedom Avenue: The Legacy of Harry and Harriette Moore,'' a multimedia production about America's first civil rights martyrs and their legacy and inspiration to those engaged in America's ongoing racial reckoning that was jointly produced by UCF's Nicholson School and WUCF-TV, Orlando's PBS affiliate; and "My TV Network,'' a joint partnership between Buffalo State College and the Buffalo Broadcasters Association, a collaboration of teachers, students and former professional broadcasters.

The Creative Track: Opportunities for Sports Faculty Members
The tenure-track is not a "one-size-fits-all" process. Many faculty members have different specialities and interests depending on their background. It can sometimes be argued that research faculty have a better understanding on the path to tenure by developing original research for journals, books, and academic conferences. Creative faculty can sometimes have a difficult time finding places to enter their work depending on their speciality.

This panel will showcase competitions and entry requirements for creative faculty members in the sports field. The plan is to highlight competitions and showcase winners of these categories. The goal is for attendees to see where they can submit and see how they measure up to the winners.

Fluid Pedagogy in the Post Pandemic World
The word "pivot" has been used quite a bit in higher education in the past year. Faculty have been asked to pivot their space, their time, and their pedagogy, and to turn from one thing to something different, in a quick way. Thinking about pedagogy differently, can turn the pivot to a more fluid student-centric experience, focused on thoughtful integration of new and important ideas and professional growth. This panel shares how faculty at a variety of institutions embraced the idea of fluid pedagogy to create change in their classroom.
Panelists: Adam Kuban, Ball State University; Incorporating Critical Service-Learning tenets into a Sports Reporting & Writing curriculum

Glenda Balas, University of North Texas – Dallas; Face to Face Foundations of Television Production class changes because of continued social distancing policies.

Is 'More Speech' still the answer? First Amendment Complications in the Media Marketplace
Mill, Milton, Voltaire, Paine. Our field teaches classical liberal ideas about freedom of speech. The foundational argument is that the solution for bad speech is always more speech. We tell our students that, when faced with hate speech, the response is not restriction but counter speech. The First Amendment calls on us to respect the rights of all speakers even when we don’t respect the message. It’s, “freedom for the thought that we hate,” as Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote in U.S. v. Schwimmer.

In the last five years, the nation has seen some disturbing trends in media and political communication that require us to reevaluate whether this marketplace of ideas approach to speech is still viable. The media industry has become siloed and polarized. Hate speech appears to be on the rise, at its worst with events such as the white supremacist march on Charlottesville, Virginia that took the life a peaceful protester. Revenge porn is given protected status even as it robs people of their privacy and dignity. Digital and social media have taken the capacity for deceptive practices in politics to a new level with deep fakes or just the simple act of writing something that isn’t true and very efficiently giving the lie mass circulation.

The incentives for media businesses, politicians, and political commentators have perverted the marketplace of ideas. We are at a point where we need to revisit and reevaluate the marketplace of ideas argument. This round table discussion will address how we begin to have that conversation as scholars and educators.
