The Philip Merrill College of Journalism has released full-session videos from the sixth Journalism Interactive Conference held on the University of Maryland campus this fall.
The videos, available on the J/i Conference website, highlight some of the two dozen sessions held during the two-day meeting of journalism educators from around the country on Oct. 20-21.
The J/i Conference seeks to improve journalism education through discussion, training and networking with top practitioners and teachers of digital journalism.
Video from previous conferences is available on the Journalism Interactive YouTube channel.
Several Merrill College faculty members helped plan the 2017 conference. About half of the faculty led sessions or made presentations.
Kalyani Chadha and Leslie Walker served as co-chairs of the organizing committee. Other committee members active in planning J/i included Brooke Auxier, Ira Chinoy, Merrilee Cox, Chris Harvey, Susan Moeller.
Auxier, Harvey and Walker also led sessions, as did Kevin Blackistone, Sean Mussenden, Sarah Oates, Dana Priest, Linda Steiner, Bethany Swain, Krishnan Vasudevan and Ron Yaros. Merrill Ph.D. student Karin Assmann also moderated a discussion.
Some Merrill College students used the conference as an opportunity to practice journalism.
Master’s students covered and wrote stories about sessions on news automation, Facebook Live and audience engagement. Those articles are available on the J/i website.
Meanwhile, undergraduate students compiled a series of short videos on the conference. Those are also available on the J/i website.
