2012) examines the role of political war rooms in the competition to generate and maintain credibility during an election campaign. Inside the NDP War Room is an inside account of a federal election campaign from the point of view of political strategists. Dr. McLean's ongoing research into visual culture, notably print culture of the 18th century, follows in the footsteps of his co-edited work, Public Art in Canada; Critical Perspectives (University of Toronto Press, 2009). Dr. McLean has published scholarly works deriving from his experience as a working journalist including essays on the political economy of media as it pertains to television news (Canadian Journal of Communication) and a critique of the journalistic treatment of the Robert Latimer euthanasia case (University of Toronto Press, Under Review). Finally, Dr. McLean is currently engaged in developing two archive-related research projects: one examining the social and cultural history of the Montreal Press Club; the other exploring the organization and cultural aspects of the CBC Radio program "Morningside."

Stanton Paddock, ABD, (University of Maryland), Assistant Professor. Professor Paddock worked as a photojournalist and multimedia producer for a variety of newspapers and magazines in the US and Diploma in Visual Journalism, February 27, 2014 23 28 over-seas. He has covered everything from the US presidential elections to unrest in the Middle East.

He has taught visual journalism for Frederick College, The US State Department, and the University of Maryland. His research explores the pedagogy of visual education. His current research interest examines historical precedent for modern trends in journalism education set by the diffusion and growth of Visual Journalism instruction in higher education in the post-WWII years. This is the topic of his forthcoming PhD dissertation at the University of Maryland, College Park.

David Secko, PhD, (University of British Columbia), Associate Professor. Dr. Secko’s amazement at the speed at which an amoeba could crawl led him to a PhD that focused on the soil amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum. Upon finishing his PhD, he started writing about science for The Scientist magazine and Vancouver’s Tyee. At Concordia, Dr. Secko leads the Concordia Science Journalism Project (www.csjp.ca) and is active in the Canadian GE3LS community. He won a University Research Award for his research contributions in 2011, the Dean’s Award for excellence as a new scholar in 2010 and the Hal Straight Gold Medal in Journalism from UBC’s School of Journalism in 2006. Dr. Secko's research links across journalism, science and ethical issues to clarify and experiment with the roles of the public, experts and journalists in the democratic governance of biotechnology. Examples of his recent articles include a qualitative metasynthesis of the experiences of a science journalists (Science Communication 34, 2: 241-282) and a narrative analysis of online commentary after science stories (Journalism 12, 7: 814-31).

5.1.2 Overall faculty characteristics As an applied program dedicated to the preparation and training of students to work in visual journalism, the primary strength of our faculty members is their professional experience as journalists.

Each of the full-time faculty members has at least five years' experience in the news industry, in the areas of newspaper, magazine, radio and television. In addition, six of the nine full-time faculty members have PhD degrees and all are active researchers, bringing their familiarity with the scholarly literature and their research work to bear on all of the courses they teach, including workshop courses.

Their research experience will be particularly pertinent to two courses in this program: JOUR 500 Perspectives on Contemporary Media and JOUR 513 Journalism Ethics and the Law.

5.1.3 Present and future workloads Full-time faculty carry a normal workload of 12 credits of teaching with the exception of on ETA with a workload of 21 credits.

Please see the attached Library Report in Appendix II, which concludes, “The collection in journalism at Concordia is largely adequate to support the proposed program.”

5.3 Studio facilities The department believes it has sufficient, appropriate space available in the second-floor TV studio or CJ2.321 to accommodate the new visual journalism program and its course JOUR 527 Elements of Lighting for Visual Journalism. However, CJ2.231 does present a challenge in that it can only be accessed through the radio newsroom. Combining CJ2.321 and CJ2.331 to create a separate entrance would present the best scenario. However, current budget estimates to make these renovations are prohibitively expensive (est. $100k), and the department is willing to forgo the renovations and make use of existing TV studio/room space.

The Department of Journalism is housed in the CJ Building on the Loyola Campus. The following is a

summary of existing spaces:

To accommodate the visual journalism program, the Computer Print Lab will need some upgrading, but that is not necessary to initiate the program.

Since the original syllabus was submitted, the field of visual journalism has become even more demanding. More emphasis has been put on journalists being able to produce not only still photographs, but video clips as well, and to be able to upload those photos and clips to servers and websites. The department’s server can accommodate such data uploads. The website will be created when the program begins. What is needed is current equipment for the Studio Workspace, meaning camera equipment that can equally deal well with both media (still photography and video). The industry standard for most photojournalists is Canon’s 5D MkIII. The following is a breakdown of

equipment needs for the department’s new program:

–  –  –

6. Recurring library collection expenditure (Appendix II) 2,200

7. Nine additional course sections (Total teaching) 92,398

–  –  –


Attrition rate of 25% (6 students) following first semester (DISC date) Students complete program over three semesters (Summer/Fall/Winter) 33-credit program

–  –  –

Offering 11 courses each year places an additional course section requirement for the Department of nine sections, given that two of the 11 will involve the possible expanded enrolments in the JOUR 500 and JOUR 513 courses.
