Video Faculty, Northwestern University

By Cory Bergman 

The Medill School at Northwestern University is reinventing its
journalism curriculum to add emphasis throughout the program on
multimedia journalism, audience understanding and engagement and
online publishing. We are looking for several innovative media
professionals or academics who can help us develop new courses and
teach undergraduate and master’s students.

We are particularly interested in people who can teach journalism
videography, including the creative use of video story forms and
production techniques to create video news and feature packages for
digital distribution via Web, cell phones and handheld devices.
Instructor and students primarily use small handheld digital video
cameras and do some field producing and editing on wireless laptops.

Northwestern University is an affirmative-action, equal-opportunity
employer. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply.
Hiring is contingent on eligibility to work in the United States.

Immediate opening. These appointments would run for one or two years,
with a mutually agreeable option to extend beyond that. This is an
exciting opportunity for people interested in helping prepare the
next generation of multimedia journalists.
