First, a quick poll! https://www.menti.com/6ffjnpijap

On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is “Not at all sure!” & 10 is “Absolutely certain!”:

How certain are you of getting a job in journalism after finishing your Diploma?

Week 10 O&S (30/4): Choose your exercise

Today you will have another opportunity to choose what you do. In all three cases, it would be great to have the work completed by the end of class. So here goes:

  1. First priority: WordPress. If you don’t yet have content or widgets on your site, you will spend this morning in a workshop with me. You can also choose this option if you want to work on your WordPress, or need advice or help. Check the assessment brief to make sure you’re on track.
  2. Make a story that is timely (i.e. something happening in the world that is relevant to our audience’s interests), or that fits this week’s show theme, “home”. Your story can be written, audio, video, photos, or graphics (or something else you come up with!) It can be for any platform (Off Campus, TAFE Radio, our socials)
  3. Make something to promote the show. This will be for one (or all) of our social media platforms.

Whichever you choose, you must write a quick outline of what you plan to do before you do it, and be specific.

I will be creating some quiet rooms for people to break into so I can work with them on their ideas. As always, we value collaboration, so if you want to work with someone else, let me know.

We will stay in Zoom, in rooms. It makes it easier for me to facilitate if anyone needs advice, or if you want to show me what you’re doing.


Audio stories should be uploaded to the Future Shows folder in the Google Drive

Written stories can be submitted for Off Campus to the Stories folder

Socials stories will be by negotiation with me 🙂
