Old stuff

January 13 Welcome

This year’s iteration of COM 356 will be the same, only different—as in past years, you will be working all semester on food, nutrition and health with an emphasis on La Salle’s efforts in those areas. That means as noted that there are a lot of resources contained within this blog and website that you can build on. What’s different, primarily, is that your final group video projects will be “omnibus” videos that allow your group to develop your own approach to the subject, rather than stories about specific components or institutional partners. The goal is to have the best of the best available for La Salle to use beyond this course to publicize what we do in these areas.

And to help with that, I received a grant from the Dean’s office to invite Ben Kalina of Mangrove Media to help us plan, produce, shoot and edit our videos. I chose Ben because I knew that he worked with non-profit groups, in particular Common Market, a local group that works to bring locally grown logofood to local institutions. He also has been involved with Project Scribe, helping community members produce their own videos. Ben will conduct two training sessions during class, and a final editing workshop the last Friday of classes.

One other change is that you will work in groups at other time during the semester, including giving a presentation on some aspect of online journalism, nutrition research, blogging or the like.

For example, here are some representative discussion starters:
