Submit session proposals for Seattle

seattlenew

CBI, as a member driven and funded organization, depends highly on you to contribute your shared knowledge and resources.  In fact, the sharing of knowledge is an essential reason why CBI exists.  If  you have expertise in some matter, whether it be events, promotions, news, careers, sports, engineering, careers, WordPress, social media, convergence, and more. Whatever you think others would benefit from in a session, we encourage you to submit a session proposal.  Not every proposal received is accepted as CBI wants to continue its great session approval rating.

If you do not feel qualified, perhaps you know people who are.  Contact them and ask them if they have an hour to speak at the convention.  Or if you feel you are somewhat qualified, but would like to have others to rely upon to fill your knowledge gap, CBI can help.

If you know professionals in the local Seattle market, contact them.

CBI wants to see the most proposals possible so we can continue to select the best possible sessions for you.

Questions?  Please send them to seattle@askcbi.org.  Ready to submit a proposal (even a partial one)? Visit http://askcbi.org/seattle/sessions-and-speakerssession-proposals/.

College TV Highlighted in Campus Explorer

Campus Explorer offers a short item on campus college TV stations in this article.  Here are some quotes from the article.

“Some stations, such as Wheaton College’s WETN, started out as radio stations. As televisions became more commonplace in American households, eventually it began broadcasting video as well. Other schools have separate television and radio stations.”

“Student video is also a great way to help you with your classwork. As an underclassman, you can prepare for exams without leaving your dorm room. CTV airs review sessions for Columbia’s core classes once a semester. ”  How common is this practice?

“Best Schools for College Video.  Other schools that were rated to have strong college television stations and media programs include New York University, Pepperdine University, Ithaca College and the University of Southern California.”  The article does not reference its source for these “ratings”.

Campus TV and the Internet

Frequency TV posts all episodes of its hugely popular “Freq Out” variety show online. Ithaca College’s ICTV 16 records some of its content as podcasts. Wheaton College students can stream WETN programming live online. You may also be able to find clips of shows posted on YouTube.”

Not much of a story and it appears to be poorly researched, but it isn’t often we see any sort of ‘news’ about college TV.

With that in mind, CBI wants to remind you that we are hear for you and we can help you and your station through mutual collaboration.  CBI has a number of sessions dedicated to student video outlets at the Fall National Student Media Convention in Orlando (click the events tab above for more information), including topics that cover basics (what are those numbers in my camera, mic applications, a roundtable on youtube channels, automation, Final Cut Pro and more!).  We also have an email list to discuss issues specific to TV/video outlets.   To join the CBI-TV E-Mail List, send an e-mail to listserv@listserv.syr.edu. In the body of the message, type “Subscribe CBI-TV” (with out the quotes).
