Welcome to Our Wiki!

This is the wiki space for our class project on Social Media and Dissent. Throughout the term we will work together to develop a podcast series on the topic of Social Media and Dissent. The project will develop in three stages:













1. Every student will prepare a 'pitch' that responds to the topic assignment given out in the beginning of term. The class will collectively vote on the top pitches. These top pitches will be developed into class podcasts. Students will be divided into programme teams of 3-5 students.The student who pitched the podcast will become the team leader for the project (or s/he can delegate this role to another member). Detailed proposals for these podcasts will then be developed by the entire team.


2. Podcast proposals are due at half term. Each student team will follow the proposal guidelines to develop a professional proposal for your programme. This proposal will be assessed and given feedback before you enter the production stage after break.

3. Programme production will begin after break. Each team will work together to finalise research, script their programme, and finally, record and edit their podcast for public broadcast.

Organizational Structure
Episode Groups à report back to at weekly class meetings and communicate on Wiki website.

Episode Groups
While everyone is welcome to work on and contribute to all episodes, you will be assessed by your work done in your producer role, as well as for your content contributions. If your workload gets too high you can opt out of working on any secondary episodes, but you must make a formal request for re-assignment from the professor to change your producer role. Each team as a team leader (denoted by *). The team leader is responsible for coordinating the group and seeing the vision of the proposal through the production stage with the support of his/her production team.
