More events and interesting updates from the Department of Communication:
Students in the Spring Audio II course, taught by Dave Strukel, will create 90 second stories about local personalities which will air on WGTE. WGTE FM 91.3 is the regional NPR station. Morning Edition, which airs 6-9 a.m. on 91.3 in Toledo airs local content during the breaks in the show. Audio II students will have the opportunity to produce local news content that will run during each hour of Morning Edition during one of the local news breaks.
According to the World Health Organization, 1.1 billion people worldwide lack access to clean water—that’s approximately one in six people on earth.
Millions of women and children in other parts of the world spend several hours a day collecting water from contaminated rivers, lakes and open wells. People can't live without water, but too many of them will die from it.
Will you help bring clean water to people who desperately need it?
The Fall 2013 Public Relations Practices class is creating a PR campaign for Clean Water for the World, which creates and installs portable water filtration systems to third world countries
that have villages of about 600 people in size. This campaign includes a social media
presence, recreation of their website, marketing and promotions and graphic design.
The UT Banned Books Vigil, coordinated by Paulette Kilmer, was held at Carlson Library on October 13, in conjunction with the American Library Association's National Banned Books Week. Students, faculty and community members contributed to this event, which drew attention to issues of freedom of expression through lectures, games, and a puppet show.
Experiential Learning Partners
Seelio Online Portfolio
Students in the Department of Communication are participating in a pilot launch at UT of Seelio, an online portfolio platform. The University of Toledo has partnered with Seelio, an Ann Arbor, Michigan-based startup to give UT students a way to create online portfolios to showcase their skills and experiences. The Seelio platform allows students to create a media-rich online portfolio in their journey to employment. Different than social media or resume building sites, Seelio lets "students create a professional persona through meaningful descriptions and rich, visual attachments. Take control of your professional online presence and stand out in a way that you can't on sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest." Check out some of the great portfolios our students have created.
The employer on average will answer 20 to 30 questions about a position when it is posted, and students are matched to that opportunity based on their answers about their skills and interests. The system identifies the top seven matches for each individual student as well as to the business for each position. When a match is made, both the employer and the student are notified, and both must select they are interested before any contact information is shared.
