November 2017 President's Corner


As I mentioned in my October column, I’m devoting this edition of my President’s Corner to the BEA Festival of Media Arts. This topic couldn’t be more timely as we have just eight days until the submission site opens for the 17th BEA Festival of Media Arts. As a quick recap, the 2017 Festival saw 1,414 entries from over 200 different institutions. Entries from 96 different institutions received recognition. Institutions leading the pack with multiple awards last year included Arizona State University, the University of Oklahoma, Palm Beach University, Goshen College and Huntington University. Students form The American University of Cairo and University of Punjab, Pakistan represented international institutions receiving awards. Read More…

Read the New Issue of JoME | October 17

Welcome to the October 2017 issue of the Journal of Media Education. This issue represents the culmination of a lot of hard work to realize a vision for making JoME the only online academic journal publishing peer-reviewed Creative and Engaged Scholarship (for more on that term please see the first article).

Because JoME is a pedagogically focused journal, I asked each author to answer a series of specific questions designed to reveal some of the process behind the work. This is one of the most important parts of this issue in my opinion. When I first encountered “Feedback” nearly thirty-five years ago, it made a huge impact on me as an educator. The articles I read inspired me in the classroom and in my professional development. JoME’s mission remains the same in many ways and it is important to encourage and equip other faculty who are working in creative media. It is my hope you will find the insights of the authors to be helpful as you pursue tenure and promotion while engaging in Creative and Engaged Scholarship.

October 2017 President's Corner

I find myself writing this October column as our university’s two-day Fall Break looms at the end of this week. The break always serves me as a prelude for upcoming BEA deadlines—most notably the 17th Annual Festival of Media Arts and the numerous deadlines for research scholarship, including the 9th Annual Research Symposium. I’ll discuss the festival in next month’s column. Today, I wish to focus on the many opportunities for presenting research scholarship at BEA2018.

For over 60 years the BEA has worked with the National Association of Broadcasters in creating the next generation of media professionals. BEA’s annual convention has been a major part of this endeavor. Co-located next door in the Westgate Hotel and Casino, BEA brings in over 1,300 educators each year and they descend upon NAB Show’s floor to see first-hand the latest and greatest tools and technology needed to teach students. Each year, schools direct BEA members to come to Vegas, either to spend the remainder of that year’s money or find the products to help teach the current technologies and techniques that they will buy in the fall with new funds.
