As I’ve been working on course design for a class I’ll be teaching this Fall (“Be the Media” – a first year seminar here at Cazenovia), I’ve been thinking about the centrality of strong content to media production. The media production skills I’ll be teaching to my students are facilitative, but it’s all to nought without proper care for the underlying substance.
In a rather different context, that thought came up again as I read Tim O’Brien’s musings on the importance of a good story.
