Media Fellows

Available to all JMU faculty! Our trained undergraduate tutors can offer semester-long support (online, in-class, and one-on-one) to assist your students in creating more sophisticated and professional online content.

So if you're ready to pilot a new digital assignment, interested in improving your students' digital production, or looking for a way to incorporate more 21st century skills into your curriculum, a Media Fellow can be a resource to you and your students to ensure a successful approach for your next innovative assignment! 

Submit your application by December 4th to be considered for a spring 2018 Media Fellow:

The Media Fellows Program

Media Fellows are offered through Digital Communication Consulting in the JMU Learning Centers. Our Media Fellows can offer a range of services to assist your students in creating more sophisticated and professional online content:

  • in class presentations and workshops on web builders, wordpress, digital storytelling, and effective digital communication
  • out of class tutoring for your students to assist in producing more sophisticated content
  • online website specifically tailored for your class with relevant resources, tools and websites that will enhance the digital production

The fellowship is a baseline of 40 hours across the semester. The faculty member, DigiComm Coordinator, and Media Fellow will collaborate on appropriate timelines, support services, and scaffolding for the digital assignment.

Benefits for Faculty

Faculty who incorporate sustained digital assignments in their course could benefit from a partnership, because the Media Fellow offers:

  • hands-on experience utilizing web builders and digital storytelling platforms and can best advise students on effective approaches, tools, and timelines
  • one-on-one or group consultations for more technical issues, allowing classroom time to be spent with more higher-order content
  • an information loop for you on the behind-the-scenes issues or concerns that your students are facing with digital assignments to improve process and production

Applications for spring Media Fellowships are due at 5:00pm December 4, 2017.
