The Tiny Texas Podcast Festival

That's a wrap! Thank you to everyone that made our second Tiny Texas Podcast Festival a reality. From our panelists, to our podcasters and attendees, we couldn't have done it without you. 

If you happened to miss the event, don't fret! We have videos of our live podcast recordings for Two and Fro, ATXplained and This Song. We also have a video of Christopher Wynn's discussion on innovation in podcasting

Learn about the different classes we offer

The Dallas Morning News Innovation Endowment ensures that students are developing an innovative mindset, even through the classes we teach. 

As part of the Dallas Morning News Innovation Endowment, we teach a digital product development capstone course each semester. The cross-disciplinary course includes students from across campus working on teams to create innovative media products. Teams have built products for The Dallas Morning News, The New York Times, Univision, The Austin American-Statesman and others. 

The course is taught by Innovation Director Robert Quigley, who is also a professor in the School of Journalism. Christian McDonald, a senior lecturer in the School of Journalism, is helping out in the course with data and coding projects, funded by the Innovation Endowment.

Learn more about our capstone course here.

This class is separate from the Dallas Morning News Innovation Endowment, but we love to brag about the innovativeness of this course. The cross-disciplinary course includes students from across campus working on teams to create iPhone and Android apps. 

The course is taught by Innovation Director Robert Quigley, who is also a professor in the School of Journalism. Jeff Linwood, a lecturer in the School of Journalism, is helping out in the course with the coding element.

This class is separate from the Dallas Morning News Innovation Endowment, but we think it's important to introduce innovation to journalism students early on. Through this course, students learn about different forms journalism can take, which ranges from audio to video to social media. 

The course is taught by Innovation Director Robert Quigley, who is also a professor in the School of Journalism. In the past, our innovation fellows have helped with the course.
