Four months ago, we ask students in our environmental and public health journalism course at the University of Michigan to write ten, one-sentence statements about news that began with the words “I believe.” After practicing reporting and journalistic writing, critiquing news stories, experimenting with various digital forms of communication and working in teams to develop news innovation ideas over the coldest Michigan winter in memory, how have those beliefs changed? Or not?
If you’re not in this course, how have your beliefs about news changed recently? What, in your opinion, is the future of news?
Thank you for sharing your views. That’s a gift. We appreciate it.
