My BERLIN study-abroad class was conducted May 11-24. We took the course up a big notch this year by establishing a workshop environment with digital cameras, software, recorders and laptops. Everyone recorded sound for each project, and then the audio was mixed with 8-12 still images to create one-minute "Soundslides" shows. From a BERLIN hotel lobby, I uploaded everything as it was produced to our JOU website.
The topics ranged from bar owners to chimney sweeps to real estate developers -- with each mini-story touching on the uniqueness of BERLIN. The 15 particpating students ranged from pre-journalism freshmen to telecom seniors.
