Beyond Bootcamp Multimedia Workshops

The Beyond Bootcamp Workshops for journalists and journalism educators will premier in January at the School of Communication at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, cohosted by the Knight Center for International Media.

They are an extension of the Multimedia Bootcamp Workshops at the University of North Carolina, founded and directed by Prof. Rich Beckman for nearly a decade there, before his move this year to UMiami.

Rather than a single workshop that introduces participants to different areas of multimedia storytelling, the Beyond Bootcamp Workshops will each last three days and cover a specific skill set. The first six workshops will be offered beginning January 3-6 and 7-10, 2009.

The curriculum includes Creating Audio Narratives, Multimedia Production, Teaching Multimedia, Creating Video Narratives, and Multimedia Programming for Journalists. Tuition for one three-day workshop is $750; tuition for two consecutive three-day workshops is $1,400. Register here:

The workshop will move beyond PowerPoint, lecture, and passive learning. Participants will make use of asynchronous discussions, multimedia materials, reading assignments and life, interactive class sessions to expand the range of instructional possibilities that are available to students.
