“Studying how today’s students seek, select, produce and share digital information is providing invaluable insight into future journalism audiences,” Yaros said. “The best way to design the new journalism models of tomorrow – especially in mobile – is to focus on what today’s app users prefer.”

Yaros has been invited to present his findings on April 24 at the national Sloan Consortium’s “Blended Learning Conference” in Milwaukee, Wis., and to the regional “Innovations in Teaching and Learning Conference” hosted in College Park on April 26-27 at the University of Maryland.

Yaros is also a 2012 Lilly Fellow collaborating with an interdisciplinary team of Maryland faculty to promote development of new “Scholarship in Practice” courses for the 2012-13 academic year.
