Election season is always a busy one for Anthony Adornato, associate professor of journalism.
That’s when the students in his mobile and social media journalism course are tasked with providing a day’s worth of coverage on election night, pitching and covering a story of their choosing.
And even with Ithaca College relying on remote instruction this fall semester due to the coronavirus outbreak, that assignment hasn’t changed. It’s simply taken on a new form, with the help of Chrissy Guest, associate professor of media arts, sciences and studies, and the students in her live event production courses.
“We’re thinking differently,” Adornato said. “This is a chance for professors and students to be innovative in the classroom.”
