The Westside Writing Project
December 30, 2014
WWP partnered with Loyola University Chicago (LUC) to host a digital media workshop for area West Side students. The workshop was held downtown at LUC’s School of Communications (SoC). We had a total of 14 students in attendance representing various schools across the city.
LUC’s Beta Rho students developed a day of activities that included touring a newsroom while also allowing students to gain exposure in interviewing techniques, social media strategies, and utilizing studio equipment.
Students were also familiarized with standard industry terms like Lead, B-roll, VO, and Nat. sound. As well as recording and interviewing tips that help to make sound media projects.WWP studnets were very engaged and seemed to really enjoy working in a college newsroom!!
Karael Eubanks, a junior at Phoenix Military Academy, described it as a “great experience to bring back to our journalism class to share with others from our school.”
Students will build on this experience by putting the concepts and theories discussed today into use when producing their own short videos about selected topics.
