Change of room for first class meeting - 5013 Vilas

(Email sent to all class participants.)

Hi there.  You're registered for Journalism 901, which is a one-credit colloquium course.  In the spring, this course focuses on issues of teaching and learning -- one of the few courses a graduate student can take on the topic.  All of the information on the course is now available at our course web site, at

In a moment I'll invite you to become a full author on this blog along with me; look for an invitation from "Blogger" in your email (and check your SPAM folder if you don't see it).  The main activity of this class is attending our Friday noon talks all semester long, but I hope we can have some discussion spill over in to the virtual space.  The blog also lists the week-by-week syllabus, provides access to a growing body of downloadable (and optional) readings, and details your four course assignments -- two of them due on the blog at different points during the semester, and two of them due at the very end of class, on the last day of finals week.  

I do have one change to our schedule already, for tomorrow's class, on Friday January 25: We'll be meeting in a different room.  Class will convene in 5013 Vilas, one time only, because of a scheduling conflict.  After that we'll be back in 5055 Vilas, the Nafziger room.  (We'll post signs.)

So for now, (1) get registered with the blog (and feel free to post and introduce yourself) and (2) I'll see you in class tomorrow, 5013 Vilas.  Cheers,
