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.

September 2017 President's Corner

During my 20 plus years of association with BEA I’ve been lucky enough to work in two districts (D5 and D2) with a history of active involvement in BEA governance. It’s in times like this, BEA election season, that I reflect on how my colleagues in District 5 encouraged every member in the district to stay actively involved in the organization through attendance at district meetings, active engagement with the district representative and by participating in the Board nomination and election process. So, as another election cycle begins, I want to encourage our members in four districts to get involved with the election process this year. Read More…

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.
