Week 3 (26/2): Making digi content together … Let’s GO!


Special guest, Brian Newington

What Journalism students will be doing: News Conference 
    • Writing a news list: appoint editors
    • Using Canva to promote TAFE Radio and Journalism on socials before each weekly show (Instagram pics & stories, Facebook, Twitter, posters, etc.)
    • Canva helps you to make snappy social media graphics, easily – read these tips and watch the tutorial below.

Some reading to refresh your memories:

    • Find a press release and write a news story in inverted pyramid style; or
    • Write a news bulletin for the upcoming show (there’s a good guide for structuring a news bulletin here); or
    • Put together a news package for an Off Campus social platform (e.g. Instagram story)
    • Should be something you’re missing from your portfolio 

Radio students: Radio Content and On Air

Run sheets and scripts: resources:

7 Microphone Etiquette Tips:

    • Prepare yourself and your environment

    • Use a microphone stand
    • Don’t blow into, tap, or bump your microphone
    • Use a windscreen or your own pop filter
    • Stay consistently close to the mic.
