News from San Jose State’s J-School:
- Kyle Hansen is skipping town, headed for Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive to work with Rob Curley. The Spartan Daily’s loss is internology’s gain.
- SJSU is hosting an NPPA Flying Short Course in October. Daniel Sato is furiously wrangling multimedia shooters behind the scenes to set up an awesome program.
- I take full
responsibilityblame for the completely inappropriate title on Daniel’s blog post that closes with the following incredibly intriguing announcement:
“The San Jose State photojournalism department will be holding multimedia workshops during the two summer sessions each year. Each session will be three weeks and will take place in a foreign country. The kicker, as if working on stories abroad was not enough, is that our school has two partners in this project. The Mercury News and National Geographic will each be sending either a photographer or an editor for one week to assist students as they learn multimedia storytelling techniques.”
The moral of the story: This is a really good time to be a J-School student at San Jose State University.*
*Disclaimer: I have every reason to be kissing up to certain faculty members right now, but really, I mean it!
