Shemberger, Wright contribute to social media classroom book

Two journalism faculty members have chapters published in a new book, Social Media in the Classroom.

Dr. Melony Shemberger and Leigh Landini Wright, assistant professors in the journalism and mass communications department, had their scholarly work to appear in the collection edited by Hana S. Noor al-Deen and published by Peter Lang Media.

The book is designed for instructors in advertising, public relations and journalism. Shemberger’s and Wright’s chapters appeared in the book’s journalism section.

Shemberger’s chapter is titled “Going on a News Consumption Diet: Engaging Students in Meaningful Current Events Discussions Through Social Media.” In it, she provides ideas on how to structure current news assignments using digital, interactive approaches.

Wright’s chapter, “Storytelling 2.0: Using Social Media Tools to Craft Multimedia Stories,” examines a variety of social media tools to enhance the multimedia storytelling experiences for journalism students.

Shemberger and Wright also provided assignments that readers could use in their classes.
