SHOOTING GLOBAL: An Essay on Meeting Outcomes with Experiential Teaching Abroad


During three consecutive summers, Marie Barnas served as the faculty advisor for a study abroad trip to Ireland where undergraduate Mass Media students could experience producing a documentary on location overseas. This past year, study abroad was challenged further with the onset of Covid and the cancelling of programs. Even if you ironed out all of the wrinkles for a trip for media students abroad, most study abroad programs cancelled those itineraries due to travel restrictions and safety precautions. In this article, we would like to share with you how we ran a successful program from getting it started to getting the most out of the media artifacts collected by our students for use on their resumes after graduation.
