Columbia Projects: Doormen, Subway Players, Folk, Schools, Art and Neighborhood Crusaders

The semester is over, and I am proud to say that six teams have completed multi-platform reporting projects in my class at Columbia University’s School of International Affairs. The teams told stories spanning subjects from a deal for New York doormen to failing city schools to Juilliard musicians earning money playing in the 42nd Street subway station.

The class was challenging, forcing students to improvise means of telling stories in various mediums with little equipment or time for training in software and craft.

But, as painful as the last sleepless week of the semester was for them, I’m pleased with what the 19 students accomplished. They should all be proud of what they created.
