  5. Extra Credit Kernels for Week 9

    photoI want to offer five point of extra credit to anyone who is willing to write an experimental blog post this week.

    It’s easy to get comfortable with writing. What I like about blogging is that there aren’t too many rules and if I want too, I can be creative with my voice and my subject matter.

    Keep in mind that sometimes experiments fail. Whatever your writing approach, remember your audience. If you go too far with language and punctuation, it could easily alienate your reader. You still want your post to be readable and to fit with the theme of your blog.

    photoSeven weeks into the term and my J452 students are finally letting their hair down.

    What’s happened? Well, the infographic assignment is upon us. This is one challenge  that you don’t want to do on your own. To get the job done students are asking each other questions, sharing resources and may even be forming a coup d’État to overthrow the third floor technology staff. (shhhhh)

    Despite the looming printer war, our class has morphed into a productive design studio. A collaborative din has taken over the room as students work together to understand the language and beauty of data visualization.

    photoAfter an ice storm that brought the area to a screeching halt, it makes perfect sense to blog about what’s in the news. Or does it?

    During the storm, I didn’t rely on social media as much as I usually do. My focus was closer to home and more at a survival level.

    Suddenly, I wanted to talk with my neighbors and inventory my pantry rather than look at #rust photos and Italian #beaches on Instagram. It was a shift in digital habits, although, I did frequently check #icestorm2014 and #snowmageddon.


If you share an interest in public relations, media and visual design, this might be a good place for you to hang out. I started this blog to exchange ideas with my students at the University of Oregon. They keep me (and maybe you too) at the forefront of social media, visual communication and career development. Here you'll find our best ideas, links and learning as we write, create and blog our way through a course on Strategic PR Communication.
