Faculty Kudos - Week of July 17, 2014

David Cuillier was interviewed by several media outlets in the last two weeks over a strongly-worded letter sent by nearly 40 journalism organizations to President Obama on the government’s lack of transparency. Cuillier is the national president of the Society of Professional Journalists. Publicity included:

On July 9, Celeste González de Bustamante gave an invited talk for members of the Independent Union of La Jornada Workers at the national newspaper, La Jornada, titled "Journalism, Security and Violence in Mexico." González de Bustamante also was quoted in a story in The Arizona Republic about the U.S. Customs and Border Protection media campaign to dissuade Central America’s undocumented migrants from traveling through Mexico and north into the U.S. S

Carol Schwalbe’s submission to the 2014 edition of Teaching News Terrifically in the 21st Century was among this year's honorees in the Newspaper and Online News Division of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication. The results (first through third and honorable mention) will be announced at the AEJMC Convention in Montreal in August. Schwalbe's entry, "Keeping Current: Talking Up the News," includes tips for increasing students' media diets by using digital tools, and replacing the weekly news quiz with a discussion based on beats. One of the judges wrote: "The instructor seems to have placed himself/herself in the shoes of students. There's a level of care expressed here. The idea is solid, and approaches the notion of current events, engaging in the news of the day, in a fresh way. The instructor makes it easy for someone else (me!) to implement this in my own class."
