The Local News & Election Coverage 2004: A Low-Budget, High-Tech, High-Impact Pedagogy

Monday, March 21 | 11:30PM–11:30PM
Session Type: Resources
Three undergraduate political science classes undertook an ambitious research project to capture local broadcast news, analyze content, parse it into election-coverage clips, and then enter and analyze all the data in a short period of time following the U.S. presidential election. This presentation will outline our uses of technology and will describe the project design and curricular objectives.
