John Collins’ Global News Analysis course is responsible for The Weave (http://weavenews.org), a blog featuring under reported news stories from around the globe. John’s students combat mainstream media by taking part in their own investigative journalism in an effort to bring less prominent news items to the masses. The Weave was inspired by similar projects such as Cal State Sonoma’s Project Censored, and War News Radio at Swarthmore College.
Blogging with The Weave has transformed John’s course from a traditional news analysis course to something that is incredibly dynamic and truly a best practice in both teaching and teaching with technology. The site is currently maintained by Dr. Collins and an editorial collective of students.
