indexIn the Spring of 2010 I was asked to teach an undergraduate class in Writing for Broadcast for UNM’s Department of Communications and Journalism.  Within the first few weeks I had recording equipment in the hands of every student…among them Juniors and Seniors who had yet to actually venture out into the field (hey, trial by fire worked for me!).  The improvement I saw in their abilities after just a few of these on-the-ground reporting and writing exercises was tremendous and I can’t wait for the day I’m able to employ this experiential approach again in the future.
