Getting in on the leading edge of interactive journalism, faculty members Kathy Bradshaw and Mike Horning attended the Journalism Interactive Conference at the University of Maryland on April 4 and 5.
Journalists and professors learned from Amy Webb, Webmedia Group, and Mindy McAdams, University of Florida, and other innovators in digital journalism. Assistant Professor Koci Hernandez from the University of California at Berkeley was the keynote speaker.
In addition to inspiring speakers and helpful training, hearing what other journalism programs were doing in their classrooms was useful, Bradshaw said.
