The Crossings Institute is traveling to Riga in May with two University of Oregon students who will produce podcasts of World Press Freedom Day events there and post them on the Crossings site. Headquarters for the conference is the new National Library in Riga:
What is Conflict Sensitive Reporting? Is it simply good reporting?
The Crossings Institute, which is developing podcasts as its primary outreach tool, is hosting podcaster Peter B. Collins at the SOJC this Friday and Saturday (February 6 & 7, 2015) for seminars and workshops.
Collins will discuss his transition from broadcast radio to podcasting along with options for optimizing podcasts’ profiles and for generating revenue from podcasting. The workshops will include step-by-step technical instruction for launching and maintaining the medium. You are welcome to join us Friday at 10 a.m. in Allen 137 — the Hall of Achievement — and/or Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Turnbull Center in Portland.
An RSVP would be appreciated; we want to assemble enough chairs.
