My teaching interests relate primarily to multimedia storytelling and the numerous tools available to enhance journalistic stories with visual and analytic dimensions.
Students today are immersed in digital technologies that have become second (or first!) nature to them. I think it is safe to say that this environment of “digital immersion” has changed the way they process information and interact socially with others. This reality has opened new opportunities for teaching and learning both inside and outside the classroom.
