Learning is a three-way street. While you will learn from me, I will be learning from you. In addition, you will learn from other students and, I hope, they will from you as well. A teacher is only truly teaching when the learner is really learning. We are interdependent upon each other.
In this class, we will combine theory with practicality but the focus is on real world application of media and communication functions. After this course, you should be capable of performing tasks and work projects on a media issue or similar communications styled work environment. Additionally you should be able to discuss media thoughtfully with a friend, at a professional event or on a job interview.
To live in a mediated world means consuming vast amounts of various media on a daily if not constant basis. From newspapers and TV, to websites and wikis, to blogs, social media and beyond. You need to decide your proper media mix.
