COLUMBIA, SC-- It's become a tradition for me-- for the last six years -- except one-- I travel to the Palmetto State to get the very latest updates on multimedia journalism, convergence and cross-media news gathering.
The experts in the field converge on the University of South Carolina campus to talk about their latest research, challenges in teaching in this area and what's likely to happen in the next few months.
Fortunately, the annual convergence conference calls on our Fall Study Break at the University of Alabama and University of South Carolina.
The conference is always a chance to get multiple "take-aways" to carry to my students.
Next fall, the 2009 gathering will be in November and hosted by our friends at the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada Reno
In addition to my postings from my Twitter page, I'll be posting several times this weekend from The Convergence Conference.
