Jon Morris, chair of the College Faculty Senate, is the leader and moderator of today’s discussion of the media’s future and curriculum.
He’s providing a context for our discussion with statistics and developments.
Here’s what he says we are up against:
* Advertising – Loss of audience and sources
* Journalism – Loss of circulation, weak online use
* Public relations – The impact of blogs and Twitter
* Telecommunications – TV rating issues, Internet radio, TV online
Traditional Media – Outward Focused
The Internet – Inward Focused
“We need a strategy for moving forward,” Morris says.
He challenges us to think about what we stand for as a college and then what can we do in our departments and how we can work together as departments.
