Welcome Aboard, Travelers

Every academic year is a voyage–a quest for knowledge, growth and opportunity.

My 12-year-old son, Danny, and I are both excited to be starting school today. Our dog, Keegan, is happy to get his peace and quiet back!

Welcome to the adventure that is Autumn 2013 Semester at The Ohio State University.

I am so excited to be here with you as we learn so many cool things–design and news writing, media law and enterprise reporting. We will use text and photos, audio and video to tell our stories. we will look at why the media does what it does–for good and bad–and how we can learn to be the best at what we do.

Some of us have an even bigger gift and challenge–incorporation of iPads in a “flipped” classroom, which could help shape journalism education of the future.

Please know I am here for you–to guide, push, instruct, cajole, convince, constructively critique and, ultimately, help make you find and become the best version of you.

So welcome to our the Autumn Adventure. Let the fun begin!
