- Tuesday, April 2, Noon-1:30 p.m.: The State of Media Today (And What We Can Do About It) with author and journalist Judith Valente, Upper House, 365 East Campus Mall, Suite 200
- Thursday, April 4, 6 p.m.: Sports Communication panel sponsored by the Association for Women in Sports, 2195 Vilas Hall. (Yes, the blog posts are due Wednesday, but if you go to this, but I’ll let you post it and fill out the form by Friday at noon and still count it.)
- Also check out the online options posted on the J202 site if you want to have one of those count as your event — you still need to post about those on your blog
- If there’s something you want to attend and there’s a media connection, send me an email to confirm it would qualify. Remember you must fill out the extra credit form for ALL of the events you attend, whether they count for the portfolio blog or extra credit.
Who needs some help on their IS projects? I’ll be in Vilas 2111 (down by the J202 labs) from 12:30-3 p.m. Friday, and the STS trainers who can help on Audition and Premiere will be on hand from 1-3 p.m. Just drop in for help on your ASFs, IS main story, audio story, social promotion package or whatever has you stressed out right now. We’re almost there — get it done!
I know work and other classes has made it hard for some of you to get to the professional practice events. Remember, you are required to go to two and write about them for your portfolio blog by Week 10; any more beyond that will count for extra credit. You must fill out the extra credit form for ALL of the events you attend, whether they count for the portfolio blog or extra credit.
Because of scheduling challenges, I’m offering some online opportunities. You may use one for a professional practice event for your portfolio blog, and one more to earn extra credit. (This means you still need to attend one event in person.) If you complete one of these online courses, you need to fill out the form and email me a copy or screenshot of the completion certificate.

I decided to add a bunch of office hours this week, because if you haven’t come to see me about your IS yet, you should. If you have *any* questions at all, you need to swing by.
There are a bunch of times available on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I’ll be bouncing around a lot, but my sign-up sheet says when I’m available and where you can find me:
