Conover, Georgia Davis; Miller, Jacob C.
Journal of Geography, v113 n2 p85-96 2014
Designed as a hybrid undergraduate class that includes online exercises and in-class discussion, Places in the Media helps students better understand the spatial politics of media that help structure our everyday lives. The article is meant as a do-it-yourself guide for instructors interested in building a course like Places in the Media. As such, it includes detailed description of the course design and how the hybrid learning environment was structured. Also included is a series of reflections on the collective experience teaching the class since it became a part of the regular course offerings in 2011.
