It’s hard to disrupt a traditional institution like a university and an industry like journalism, but meet professors who have taken steps to build digital culture within the classroom, in hopes of disrupting in the newsroom. Ranging from creating apps, flying drones or creating AR/VR experiences to using digital platforms to cover breaking news like the Boston Marathon Bombings, these professors are forcing their schools — often alone and with little to no support — to embrace digital and make significant changes. Hear how you can disrupt your institution through digital culture on nearly any budget. Learn how to "fail fast" and still pass the class.
