I TWEET ABOUT TECHNOLOGY AND MEDIA. IG IS PERSONAL

"Val was incredible. She explained things that are scary, simply because they are
both new AND constantly changing (a lethal combination), and somehow renewed my enthusiasm for digital media. I know that MJ and Michael felt the same way. We're eager to go shoot some videos. We learned stuff that four years at Ernie Pyle didn't give us. I can only imagine what our readers are going to think once they see our stuff.
As a teacher, Val was worth it."

"An inspiring and motivating force for change, Val Hoepnner is the digital shot in the arm traditionally trained journalism instructors need to advance their multi-platform storytelling knowledge and skills. Regardless of where you fall in terms of digital literacy, you will come away from her training sessions with an amplified ability to translate, navigate and teach students the ins and outs of mobile-first newsgathering and storytelling. Her approach is upfront, straightforward and respectful. And even the most seasoned instructors of video storytelling will find her methods for shooting video, recording sound and editing stories valuable. Moreover, as an industry insider, her insights provide a rich resource for academic programs looking to more fully understand and confront the major shifts in the way news is gathered, presented, disseminated, discovered and shared."
