The Law and Policy Division sponsored a contest in 2009 to recognize innovative
ideas for teaching communication law and policy. Submissions were judged
based on creativity, innovation, practicality and overall value in teaching
communication law and policy to our students.
Winning submissions will receive a certificate and a cash prize -- $100 for first prize; $75 for second prize; and $50 for third prize -- and will present their ideas to division members during our AEJMC convention business meeting.
Here are the winning ideas for 2009:
First place: "Blogging and the First Amendment," Steven Helle, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Second place: "Multimedia Course Project for Mass Comm Law Survey Class," Robert Kerr, University of Oklahoma
Third place: "Using Literary Works to Teach Mass Media Law," John Bender, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
The winning ideas are outlined in this PDF.
Thanks go out to the judges and to everyone who submitted an idea.
