Monday we talked about law, which is hugely important, but today we also discussed ethics, another one of my favorite subjects in the journalism arena.
Our ethics instructor was Donica Mensing, a University of Nevada, Reno, Reynolds School of Journalism associate professor.
She shared some good stuff, and I live-blogged her presentation. Check that out here: http://www.coveritlive.com/index2.php/option=com_altcaster/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=2e68b1986d/height=550/width=470
We also discussed editorials, columns and letters with Warren Lerude, RSJ professor emeritus.
This was cool because Lerude is a Pulitzer Prize winner. He won the 1977 Pulitzer for Editorial Writing. He has even more amazing credentials too. He was a great guy.
Martin Faint live-blogged his presentation. Check that out here: http://www.coveritlive.com/index2.php/option=com_altcaster/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=bf6c99dbf2/height=550/width=470
Then Karl Grubaugh talked to us about grading high school journalism, which is something I’ve been struggling with anyway.
It was enlightening, but I still haven’t come up with a definitive way to do it.
