Professor Kanigel Interviews Corey Ford of Matter

August 4, 2014

PBS MEDIASHIFT -- Journalism Associate Professor Rachele Kanigel interviews Corey Ford, managing partner of media investment firm Matter. Kanigel: “What can journalism instructors do to make a class feel more like an incubator?” Ford: “There is a challenge in doing this at a school environment. What you need to do is reinforce the process rather than the outcome. You can tie grading to the process rather than to the final project. Educators can analyze how students are pushing their learning forward on a weekly basis. A course like this is going to fail if it’s about a midterm and final. This can’t be a course where people show the product and just cram the night before.”
