How to have a successful TEACHA
This is our 9th TEACHAPALOOZA and we have learned a few things about how to get the most out of our days together.
As you consider which Deep Dives you want to attend, I urge you to go to the sessions that you do NOT know the most about. TEACHA should challenge you and expand your interests.

Make connections. This is a relaxed atmosphere where you can make lifelong friendships. The academic world is quite connected and our participants have a long record of helping each other.

We try to make everything "open source." We urge you to share what you know, what you teach and how you teach it. We are here to help each other. This is not a competition.

How to be a Hackademic no matter how big your school/budget
Robert Hernandez, one of the few true veterans of web journalism, has made a name for himself as a journalist of the web, not just on the web. His primary focus is exploring and developing the intersection of technology and journalism — to empower people, inform reporting and storytelling, engage community, improve distribution, and, whenever possible, enhance revenue.
Hernandez is an associate professor of professional practice, AKA a web journalism professor, at USC Annenberg.

 He’s not an academic… he’s more of a hackademic. He describes himself as a mad scientist for journalism and likes to “MacGyver” web journalism solutions.
He believes in “open source,” sharing knowledge and experiences among journalists. To that end, he has taken the leading role in uniting and building a community of digital journalists and technologists in a variety of ways. From serving on national boards (which have included Chicas PoderosasInquireFirst, the Online News AssociationNational Association of Hispanic Journalists, among others) to organizing digital communities around VR Journalism or media diversity issues.
Many journalists know him as the co-founder of #wjchat, a weekly forum on Twitter that that ran for more than seven years and engaged participants from around the world. Or the curator of his Tech & Tool page, a collection of tools aimed at inspiring innovation in web journalism. 
His most recent work includes Augmented RealityWearables/Google Glass and Virtual Reality — he and his students produce immersive experiences under their brand: JOVRNALISM™. Their work can be seen in The New York TimesNBCNPRProPublicaUSA Today and in their own iOS/Android app.
JOVRNALISM has received awards from the Online News Association, Society for News Design and Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, as well as grants from the Knight Foundation and others.

He is the recipient of SPJ’s 2015 Distinguished Teaching in Journalism Award. He has been an international keynote speaker, panelists (SXSW three times), moderator and gave a TEDxKC talk on the future of news and misinformation.
Prior to joining Annenberg, Hernandez was director of development for The Seattle Times, where he worked from 2002 until 2009. He helped shape and execute the vision for the website and company, leading a team of engineers and designers in creating innovative tools and applications for readers as well as staff. He also worked as a web designer and consultant for El Salvador’s largest daily newspaper site, La Prensa Gráfica, web producer for The San Francisco Chronicle and online editor of The San Francisco Examiner.
Hernandez has made it to Imgur’s front page more than once. He connects dots and people.

How to teach students to talk to people, not just text or IM them for stories
Les Rose’s 38-year career in broadcast journalism included 22 years with CBS National News Network as a photojournalist and field producer.  He is in his third year at the Newhouse School at Syracuse, NY. He spent 23 years off and on working with CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman, including the series “Everybody Has a Story",

Few are as skilled at making interview subjects feel at ease in the presence of a camera as Les. Now, he teaches his students how to get the best out of the people they are interviewing. He will share his best questions, how "setting" makes a huge difference in how an interview unfolds and how to get reluctant subjects to trust you.

Rose has been honored with a national Edward R. Murrow Award and five Emmy Awards.

Get your students working with the pros

“SEVEN IN THE CITY”
This is a two-semester class I am currently teaching at Johns Hopkins University’s MA in Writing Program. The first semester, journalism students did written profiles of seven year olds across Baltimore and articles on systemic problems confronting our city's youth. This semester, my writing students are joining forces with undergrads in the Film and Media Studies department and I am co-teaching the class with filmmaker Matthew Porterfield. The project is supported by a $10,000 “Idea Lab” grant, funded through the JHU President’s office, that I secured to cover project expenses like the beautiful photo, above, by Baltimore photographer J.M. Giordano.

KAREN HOUPPERT is the Associate Director of the M.A. in Writing Program at Johns Hopkins. She was a contributing writer for The Washington Post magazine for several years and now freelances for many magazines, covering social and political issues.
A former staff writer for The Village Voice for nearly ten years, she has won several awards for her coverage, including a 1991 National Women’s Political Caucus Award for feature writing, a 2003 Newswomen’s Club of New York “Front Page Award,” a 2011 Council on Contemporary Families Media Award for Print, and 2015 and 2016 Maryland/DC/Delaware Press Association Award—as well as bringing in 18 MDDC journalism awards for her staff that year while she served as editor in chief of Baltimore City Paper. She was twice an ASME National Magazine Award finalist and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2016 for her essay “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Interrupted.”
She has won numerous fellowships, grants and residencies including a 2013 John Jay/H.F. Guggenheim Reporting Fellow, a 2012 John Jay Public Welfare Reporting Fellow, a 2008 Kaiser Media Fellow, multiple Nation Institute Investigative grants, a 2010 Lucy Grealy memorial writing grant, a Casey Journalism fellowship, a MacDowell Colony residency, two Mabou Mines artist residencies, and a New York State Council on the Arts grant.
Houppert’s reporting has appeared in a wide variety of publications, including The Washington Post Magazine, The New York Times, Newsday, Baltimore City Paper, The Nation, Slate, Salon, Mother Jones, The Village Voice, Ms, Glamour, Mademoiselle, Redbook, Self, and Parenting—and many other media outlets.
She is the author of three nonfiction books, a contributor to five, and co-author of the Obie-award winning play “Boys in the Basement” based on her trial coverage of a rape in Glen Ridge, New Jersey—as well as several other plays.

The places you can send students to find data for stories (and assignments)
What could your students learn about:
-Crime in your city
-Who is your community's biggest polluter?
-Who are the biggest financial backers of your local congresspersons?
-How much money do local charities bring in and how do they spend the donations?
-How safe is the food at the most popular restaurants in town? What about your college stadium?

Stephen Stock will show you where to find data and how to make sense of it.

"You see numbers, I see a story": Turning data into journalism
NBC Bay Area investigative reporter Stephen Stock’s work has prompted changes in both federal law and policy. His joint investigation with CBS's 60 Minutes into Medicare fraud prompted Congressional leaders to change federal law. The multiple part investigation won Florida's Associated Press' Best in Show and the Society of Professional Journalists' Green Eyeshade Awards Best in Television and Best Investigative Work.

Stephen's investigation in airline pilots falling asleep in the cockpit also ended with the FAA changing flight rules to ensure that pilots get more rest. His exposure of troubled day cares throughout the state forced the State of Florida to change the way it monitors and tracks day cares that fail to comply with state regulations.

Stephen also has won four regional Edward R. Murrow and three Suncoast Regional Emmy awards for his work at CBS4 in Miami. Stock was named an Ethics Fellow at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg in 2004. He has also twice been named a finalist for the national IRE award.

"Do You See What I See?" How to teach students to "think visually"
Eric Seals is one of the nation's leading news and sports photojournalists and photo/multimedia journalists.   His session will help you to see what he sees when he looks through a viewfinder and to give you tools to teach "visual thinking" to your students.  Your students will be required to capture both stills and video, no matter what media they work in.  Eric will help you think through how to stay organized enough to capture moving and still images.

Experience
“If you learn to shoot with your heart, you’ll move people’s souls!”
A good friend & mentor said that to Eric Seals years ago. It’s something he still thinks about working as a Photo & Video Journalist at the Detroit Free Press where he’s been since 1999.
Over the years Eric has covered many events for the Free Press from two Intifadas in Israel/Palestine, 5 months in the war on Iraq & many sports from the Olympics in Rio, Beijing and South Korea to several Super Bowls, World Series & NBA Finals.
In May of 2008 he eagerly embraced video storytelling for Freep.com.
Since then he has done many video stories from human interest & social issues to short documentaries & projects.
His first film “Graveyard of the Great Lakes: A Shipwreck Hunter’s Quest to Discover the Past” played at 18 film festivals around the country many of which he attended since October of 2016.
He loves the challenge of bringing a cinematic look, feel & emotion to his video stories while at the same time staying true to the one thing that matters more than anything else…the story, the story, the story!
Eric has been recognized for his video storytelling with a 2016 national Edward R. Murrow award, a national Webby Award, multiple Michigan Press Photographer Association Multimedia Photographer of the Year awards, several POYi awards & nine regional Emmys.
Teaching is a big passion for him. He coaches at various workshops from the NPPA Multimedia Immersion at Syracuse University, the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, Missouri Photo Workshop and the Lens Collective at the University of Mississippi. He has also judged & spoke at several national & state contests including the Northern Short Course & the Atlanta Seminar on Photojournalism.

Power Shift- preparing students to confront and prevent workplace harassment and discrimination
The Freedom Forum Institute’s PowerShift Project was founded in 2018 in response to sexual misconduct scandals in media. It is guided by Jill Geisler, Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity at Loyola University Chicago and Freedom Forum Fellow in Women’s Leadership. Geisler created the “Workplace Integrity” curriculum for media organizations and journalism schools. It is being delivered by certified trainers, including Katy Culver. Workplace Integrity is defined as: ENVIRONMENTS FREE OF HARASSMENT, DISCRIMINATION AND INCIVILITY, BUT FILLED WITH OPPORTUNITY, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN DENIED IT.

"I don't want to wind up on YouTube "- Finding the courage and skill to teach tough subjects
Educators live with the dual pressure of having the obligation to expose students to controversial and even divisive issues while also not wanting to stir up a political firestorm for themselves or their school. Adjunct and non-tenured teachers may consider themselves to be especially vulnerable.
Keith Woods has taught educators and journalists how to navigate difficult conversations for more than 20 years.   He will help you get comfortable with your own values and beliefs first, then guide you in how to have difficult conversations with students that enculture respect while not avoiding issues that should be discussed.

#2  Angela Anderson-Emerson University-a speed dating approach to teaching students to pitch their stories 

#3 Diana Dawson, The University of Texas at Austin - I created an assignment in the fall that was inspired by something Ramon Escobar did last year at Teachapalooza. Remember when he asked each of us to text someone whom we knew had our back and said we should never lose touch with those people?  Well, I took that and created the “Phone Assignment” to get students over the fear of talking on the phone. It’s something that’s real for this generation of students and too often leads to them doing email interviews or not following up email requests for interviews with a phone call. The assignment requires them to make a phone call to that special person they have not actually spoken to in a while, have a conversation of at least 10 to 15 minutes and report back about how the result of that conversation was different from what they may have gotten through email or text.

Legal Myths that journalism students and teachers fall for
Previously, he was the executive director of the Student Press Law Center (SPLC) in Washington, D.C. since 2008.  During his tenure, he launched a number of major programming initiatives, including the “New Voices” initiative that has resulted in enactment of fortified legal protections for student journalists in 13 states, and the “Active Voice” fellowship program for college undergraduates to design “press freedom service projects” amplifying the voices of young women, who experience the brunt of school censorship.
Before joining the SPLC, LoMonte practiced law with Sutherland Asbill and Brennan LLP in Atlanta and clerked for federal judges on the Northern District of Georgia and the Eleventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
Prior to embarking on his legal career, he was an investigative journalist and political columnist. He was the capitol correspondent for the Florida Times Union (Jacksonville), Washington correspondent for Morris News Service and the Atlanta bureau chief for Morris.

Teach Students to EARN Trust
Journalism has an education problem. We have to stop assuming people know how and why we do our jobs. We can’t let ourselves get lumped in with perceptions of “the media.” Instead, we need to actively work to earn trust from our communities by telling them why we’re worthy of their time, trust and support. Since 2016, the Trusting News staff has been working with newsrooms to learn how people decide what news to trust and help journalists implement trust-building strategies. In this session, we'll talk about assignments and exercises you can take back to your classrooms.

How to teach your students (and yourself) to manage stress and trauma
Sidney and Al Tompkins combine more than 40 years of psychological counseling practice with more than 40 years of journalism to talk with journalists around the world about managing the everyday stress of journalism.  Journalists also are exposed to indescribable trauma while doing their jobs and rarely have the formal support systems that EMTs, firefighters and police have, even though journalists are on the same scene as the first responders.
New studies also show higher rates of traumatic stress among photojournalists and producers.
The sooner that educators can begin helping emerging journalists to recognize the symptoms of stress, the better.
Keep in mind, that lots of educators are, themselves, former journalists who may still be carrying the scars of workplace trauma.
