ALL DAY: 6/24 “So Much Change: Leading in Turbulent Media Times” with Rob Karwath
Class Time: June 24 (Th) 10:30-11:30 // 12:30-1:30 // 2:30-3:30 // 4:30-5:30
The last few years — and especially recent months during the pandemic — felt overwhelming for young journalists and their teachers. So much change has rippled through modern media, including at the high school level. But rather than see change as frustrating or frightening, high school journalists and their advisers can have more impact than ever while learning and serving their audiences if they embrace change and see it as an opportunity for innovation. We’ll explore how to do that and how to engage the rest of the team in navigating our ever-changing modern media world.
Rob Karwath is general manager and news adviser of the University Daily Kansan, the independent, student-run voice of the University of Kansas community since 1904. He also is an instructor at the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Before coming to KU, Karwath was a reporter, editor and media business executive. He also founded and serves as CEO of North Coast Communications, a Minnesota-based strategic communications firm with clients nationwide.
