SU's Cox Earns AEJMC Honors
|Dr. Catherine Cassara of Bowling Green State University presented the Association of Journalism and Mass Communication Editors' third-place Best Practices in Teaching Award to Dr. Jennifer Brannock Cox.|
Cox placed third in the association’s “Best Practices in Teaching” competition for her submission “Ethics in Real Time – Using Periscope to Increase Accuracy, Truth and Transparency.” The topic for this year’s award was “Ethics in an Emerging Media Environment.”
Cox also received an honorable mention from the “Teaching News Terrifically in the 21st Century” competition hosted by the association’s News and Online Division. Her entry, “Flipping the Lens: Using Photo Elicitation to Turn Participants into Reporters” allowed students in her Participatory Journalism class to serve as both journalists and sources as they took photos and then were interviewed about their motivations and feelings when capturing the images.
The exercise helped them not only participate in the story to gain a better understanding of the topic and produce truthful news, but to tell the story in a new, interesting way. The honor marked Cox’s fourth from the division.
