Convergence In J-School

The Professor who teaches my grad class is about to give a presentation on Convergence – he attended a seminar a few weeks ago at the Poynter Institute and came back full of ideas.

What’s convergence? Here’s what Larry Pryor from the USC Annenberg School of Communication adapted from the talk he gave at the Poynter seminar in question.

At SJSU, we already have undergraduate classes in Internet Information Gathering and Online Journalism, as well as a graduate class in New Media Technology, so I’m interested to see what sort of proposal Prof. Craig has for bringing the broadcast and/or photojournalism tracks into the online curriculum. Today will probably just be Convergence 101 for the faculty, though.
