COMM 3010 - Writing and Producing the Narrative for Digital Media


(CU-CEL)     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: sophomore standing.

C. Byrne.

New media communication has been blurring the traditional roles of content creator and consumer. Professional communicators—such as journalists, screenwriters, advertising executives, documentarians, and podcasters—are now expected to know how to use alternative storytelling forms to reach their audiences. They need to know how to gather information through a variety of sources such as crowdsurfing and social media; quickly and efficiently write, edit, and record audio and video. This course will explore these new delivery systems and provide guided practice of emerging communication forms. Fundamentally, this course is about writing—concisely and accurately with a clear and active voice—for new digital media with a focus on the personal narrative.

Outcome 1: Write, edit and produce both personal narratives and community based research topics in essay, podcast and short video documentary formats.

Outcome 2: Collaborate, and share written and produced content with the class in the form of audio/visual and oral presentations.

Outcome 3: Encouraged to express their diverse perspectives.
