Recommended Qualifications: Teaching experience at college level or higher. The ability to facilitate publishing student work on a professional outlet.
Course description: This course is designed to bring students, who are already familiar with basic radio/audio/reporting and production, to a new level of expertise. Past instructors have arranged for student work to be broadcast locally on KQED-FM or KALW-FM, or nationally on Making Contact. It's important for the Advanced Radio instructor to guide student work from pitch through final production and provide a pipeline for qualified student work to be published professionally.
Past syllabi are available upon request, but new proposals with fresh approaches are encouraged. Applications are due October 15, 2015.
J-298 – TELLING STORIES ON AIR (15 weeks)
Required Qualifications: Minimum of five years professional media experience.
Recommended Qualifications: Teaching experience at college level or higher.
The focus of this course is not solely on audio or production, but rather on the many ways to craft a story. The course is open to all graduate students, regardless of skill level or platform concentration. Any instructor applying for this position should be prepared to help students with story-telling skills in a variety of platforms (TV, Documentary, Multi-media, narrative writing, etc.).
In the past radio reporters (Kelly McEvers), producers (the Kitchen Sisters), and a foreign correspondent with radio and print experience (Annie Murphy) have taught the class.
Past syllabi are available upon request, but we are encouraging new proposals with fresh approaches. Deadline for applications is October 15, 2015.
