Cloud Teaching

Cloud teaching and learning for new journalism

birkbeckmedia.theinternationale.com

The journalism courses I have taught at Birkbeck, University of London focused on the challenges and opportunities presented by distributed social media. Journalism and the media industries are changing rapidly and if the courses are to remain relevant to that industry (both in terms of employment prospects and analysis) then the material they deal with and the tasks they set students has to move equally fast. The project recently won a BETA (Birkbeck Excellence in Teaching Award), see report here.

At one level birkbeckmedia is based around a Wiki site I built (birkbeckmedia.theinternationale.com). At another level it is based across the Live Web.

I recently presented the site and my report to Birkbeck see here.
