Past as Prologue. Media content. Government, market forces or media. Who do you trust?
The Federal Communications Commission is prohibited from determining broadcast content before the fact (prior restraint). However, beginning with the 1927 Radio Act broadcasters were held responsible for content due to the scarcity of frequencies and past abuses by broadcasters. How do past and present cases serve to guide future efforts by the government to influence electronic media content. Who can and should best determine content: Government, market forces or the media?

How Broadcast Media Stays Relevant in a Changing Global Environment
Academic media professionals must stay relevant in our ever-changing broadcast environment.

How Utah Journalists Helped Create New Access Rules for Video Cameras and Other Digital Tools Inside State Trial Courts
Utah has been stuck in the dark ages when it comes to camera access to Utah's trial courts. For decades, only still cameras were allowed in trials, even high-profile ones. Utah courtrooms were consistently ranked among the least accessible in the United States. That all changed dramatically in April 2013 when new rules began to allow television cameras, radio recording equipment and personal electronic devices — laptops, smartphones, tablets and so on — in trial court proceedings, That is unless a judge has a good reason to ban any or all of those devices beforehand. The story of how journalists and First Amendment attorneys convinced the Utah Judiciary to become a leader on access and also how Utah broadcast journalists are providing self-governing rules and implementation is an important one. It also provides a model to help convince other state court administrators that moving to access-friendly policies benefits the public and court operation. It would also review how the courts and news organizations are using technology to coordinate coverage.

Thinking Outside the Box: A Look Back at Significant Broadcast Programming Events

Which Is More Vital To Production Classes: Teaching Content or Technology?
Our digital production students can't create quality projects without a firm grasp of camera and editing technology.

As modern technology becomes more complex, what's the right ratio in teaching historical and theoretical content versus teaching technology in a classroom?

'Please Quote Me!'
Many small and medium colleges can't seem to get placement in national publications. That billing usually goes to the bigger ones with national reputations. The small ones desire national visibility but advertising is too expensive so all they can hope for is to get recognized in the press by either placing a news story, which is very difficult, or to have its professors quoted. The panel will explore and explain how these opportunities are put together. There are marketing communications firms that work closely with small/medium colleges to get their professors quoted (as experts) in their specialty areas.

Defining the Documentary: Can a Website Be a Documentary?
‘Defining the Documentary’ is an ongoing series exploring issues concerning the documentary. This year we will ask, "If everything's a documentary, is anything a documentary?" Websites, books, museums? Does a broader definition help us keep up with changes, or does it take away from some 'true' meaning? Following a brief introduction, we will break into small groups, each with its own moderator, and discuss a variety of scenarios – allowing all attendees to participate in the conversation.

Ohio University's Collaborative Student Productions with universities in Malaysia and Nashville, Tennessee
During 2012-13 Ohio University's School of Media Arts & Studies completed a pair of collaborative student film projects, one in Nashville,TN, with Tennessee State University, a historically black university over 400 miles away, and the other in Shah Alam, Malaysia, with Universiti Teknologi MARA which is more than 9,000 miles away. The ways in which each of these short narrative projects were produced is very appropriate for the conference theme. Ohio University did indeed forge "New Connections" that were both "Mobile and Global." Portions of the 2 films will be screened and panelists will discuss how they and students from their respective universities worked together on these two 20 minute narratives, one with an all African American cast, the other with an all-Malay cast. The Showcase will include a presentation on how students used Skype, Facebook, and other social media during pre-production to develop scripts, find locations, do casting and raise funds, and will also focus on how these projects addressed cross cultural collaboration and ethnic diversity.

Addressing the call for a better journalism education
Critics, educators, and journalists have criticized and challenged whether journalism programs can adequately prepare and secure future graduates a job. On April 15, 2013, Tom Rosenstiel provided a framework in which journalism educators could teach both skills and critical thinking to help students understand the extent journalists’ behavior influences society while evolving technologically as well (http://bit.ly/16N4qtC). To best prepare students for the present media landscape, Rosenstiel argued that journalism curriculum should reflect four pillars: 1) the teaching of technological skills, 2) journalism responsibility, 3) the business side of journalism, and 4) the discipline of verification. One year later, each member of the panel including Tom Rosenstiel will address each individual component of Rosenstiel’s new curriculum, which includes how educators can make it happen within their present structure.

In this panel, Professor Kara Jolliff Gould and 168 Board Member Brian Bird (Evening Shade, Touched by An Angel, When Calls the Heart) explain the outstanding opportunities offered to competitors in the 168 Film Project, and recent 168 filmmakers share their stories of struggles and miracles from the "168" trenches and show some of their outstanding work. Learn all you need to get your students involved in this competitive storytelling opportunity, and to become involved yourself! Last year's sponsor EchoLight Studios committed a feature budget of up to $1,000,000 to the festival grand prize winner.

Sports Division Business Meeting
Welcome to BEA's Sports Division, established in April 2008. For a long time sports wore the tag of the 'toy store.' No serious study of the media could include a look at sports. But, times have changed. Academics as well as non-academics have seen that, for better or worse, sports are an essential element of U.S. and worldwide culture. This has led to a surge in academic organizations that recognize and embrace sports as a legitimate intellectual pursuit. A number of academic journals have been developed all devoted to sports, and schools that have sports-related classes, and even majors, are growing in number as we speak.

College TV & Radio: The Challenges & Triumphs of Smaller Programs
College stations are a great way for students to get that all important hands-on experience in their fields of study. While all student media face challenges, organizations associated with smaller colleges/universities tend to face different issues than their counterparts from larger schools. Faculty/staff often struggle with maintaining student participation, producing consistent content, shortages of resources as well as challenges from administrators. Panelists from smaller programs will share their experiences and offer strategies for overcoming challenges.

The Road to an ‘All-Internet Protocol’ Telecommunications World
The United States is a 21st century country, with an economy of trillions of dollars powered by amazing technologies and innovations – think computers, high-speed Internet, software and apps and wireless devices. But, despite these technical advances, our nation’s telecommunications system still overly relies on an outdated 20th century technology, consisting largely of copper wiring that harkens back to the days of Alexander Graham Bell and rotary telephone dials. Similar to the transformation of American television to digital, the FCC and the Congress now are looking at transitioning telecommunications to an all-IP system. The potential benefits of the IP transition would be tremendous, in terms of economic development, job creation/growth, and consumer welfare. But, how do we get there? AT&T and others have proposed IP transition trials to ensure that consumers and businesses are not negatively affected by the transition. The FCC has set up government advisory committee working group to study and make recommendations on the transition. Barry Umansky and Steve Pociask, the two co-chairs of that working group will join other experts in reviewing the legal, economic, technical and policy issues.

Social Media: Destroy or enhance your credibility as a journalist in 140 characters or less
I'm sure you all remember the rookie reporter who dropped the F-bomb on the air in April of 2013 on his very first night of anchoring? Well that reporter, A.J. Clemente, was my former student at West Virginia University. Because of social media, his "blunder" went viral with nearly two million hits on YouTube alone. This panel explores how social media can make or break careers in the journalism field. Panelists will share tips and techniques of incorporating social media into their syllabi, classrooms and broadcasts; how to verify sources and information posted on social media sites and how to utilize social media tools to enhance reporting in this emerging new media paradigm.

BEA2014 Podium Session -- Communication Theory: Fifty Years a Critic
Podium Session: James A. Anderson, Professor of Communication, University of Utah
Introduction by: Robert K. Avery, Professor of Communication, University of Utah

Recent work by Professor James Anderson and his coauthor Michael Middleton has documented the explosive growth in theory development within the field of communication, particularly in the last three decades. A closer look at the character of this growth reveals that most of the theories are short-lived, perhaps averaging a five-year life span and most fading within a decade. This presentation considers the economic forces that drive theory development and the epistemological weaknesses that lead to the cyclical extinction of the theories developed.
James A. Anderson (Ph.D., University of Iowa) is the author/co-author/editor of seventeen books, including The Organizational Self and Ethical Conduct, Media Violence and Aggression, and Media Research Methods. His more than a hundred book chapters, journal articles, and research monographs are in the areas of family studies, cultural studies, media literacy, organizational studies, communicative ethics, methodology, and epistemology. He is a Fellow and past president of the International Communication Association and was a recipient of the Broadcast Education Association’s 2007 Distinguished Scholar Award. He has been the editor of Communication Yearbook and Communication Theory, associate editor of Human Communication Research, guest editor of Communication Studies and American Behavioral Scientist and an editorial board member of seven other scholarly journals. He has been recognized in the Western States Communication Association as a “Master Teacher” and served a senior Fulbright Fellowship in Austria. He is Director of the Center for Communication and Community at the University of Utah, which is currently conducting studies in health communication, emergency medical processes, social services for the citizen soldier, contemporary public library design, rehabilitation of youth offenders, and technological literacy training for the retired person.

Paid, unpaid or credit: How do we handle internships
Internships have been critical in broadcast education for many years. But recent events are creating problems. Key issues include internships for pay, for no pay and for academic credit. Should we only give credit for internships when the company follows the strict wage and hour guidelines definition of an internship? Should we change our policies to make it easier for students to pay for internship credit hours? Our panel wishes to explore these questions and more and find out how other universities are handling this critical issue.

Educated Uncertainty: Four Perspectives on Teaching the Physics and Romance of TV Technology to Non-Technical Learners
The future TV professionals we teach should enter the industry with more than a perfunctory understanding of the technology on which their careers will be based. They should be introduced as early and as often as possible to the “romance” and challenge of moving signals from point A to point B. That romantic vision drove early pioneers to create radio and television at a time when everything had to be built from scratch. It is that vision of the physics and romance behind the technology that motivates today’s engineering and technical personnel with whom our students will someday collaborate, a job they will do better if they have shared, even to some small degree, the challenges of operating and in some cases building a technical apparatus. This panel will address the novel strategies four educators employ to overcome the barrier to learning we are calling “educated uncertainty,” so common among non-technical students.

Alan Goldenbach, Utica College; Sharpening News Judgment Through Twitter
Twitter has become a chief gateway for news producers and consumers to stay abreast of information. The ease of use, however, opens the door for audiences to be manipulated, if not misinformed altogether, by this medium. Twitter users, meantime, need to learn how to execute news judgment when using this medium.

Social Media Use in the Arab World
In the past few years social media have been used in a wide variety of ways in the Arab region, whether to rally people around social causes and political campaigns, boost citizen journalism and civic participation, create a forum for debate and interaction between governments and their communities, or to enhance innovation and collaboration within government. For example, The Dubai School of Government’s July 2012 report entitled “Social Media in the Arab World: Influencing Societal and Cultural Change” provides a comprehensive review of social media use in the Middle East. The document includes several charts reflecting survey results. One chart notes that 75 percent of Saudi Arabs and 71 percent of Emiratis believe that their contribution to society has increased through using social networking tools. This panel explores how social media are being used in some Arab world countries and what impact they have on the people and institutions.

The Retransmission Consent Wars – Any Peace Signs, or Just Escalation?
TV broadcasters’ retransmission consent option for cable carriage has been in the law for over two decades. But, in recent years we’ve seen highly publicized “games of chicken” waged between station owners and multichannel video providers. The frequent result has been a standoff lasting as long as a month, resulting in viewers being unable to access broadcast programming from one warring party over the multichannel system of another in the battle. Broadcasters, cable operators and satellite providers are adopting strategies and arguments to help advance their respective interests, with government regulators and the public giving close attention to the wars and the skirmishes. Now many in Congress want to enact retransmission consent reform. Some proposals would give the FCC the power to end the blackouts. Other proposals are more far-reaching. Hear all sides in an informative session featuring policy experts and representatives of those in the battles.

Teaching Your Media Program With Little or No Budget: Cheap Filmmaking Tools & Techniques the Pros Use
Come to this session and you'll have the chance to win iOgrapher cases, MXL Mics x4, the Filmic Pro app, and Peachpit books!  You've been tasked with teaching your students the process of digital content creation—from  development of the story to equipment, to production and post production, to distribution. Your student might have access to cameras, lighting systems, and a nonlinear editor such as Premiere Pro, FCP, or Avid but in many departments, the access to the equipment is limited, the tools are outdated, or there may not be much available to you and your students at all. To teach many hands-on aspects of filmmaking, the tools are there at your disposal in the form of iPads, DSLRs, accessories, and inexpensive software and apps. This session led by the creator of Filmmaking Central (filmmakingcentral.com), inventor of iOgrapher (iographer.com), and author of the forthcoming book Media Arts 101 (peachpit.com) is sure to give you new ideas for teaching using modern filmmaking concepts and tools.

Visual Media and Critical Pedagogy: Classroom Strategies, Student Learning, and Assessment
Lectures and term papers are not the only way to teach. In fact, a growing body of research suggests that asking students to produce visual documents (e.g., infographics, concept maps, comic strips, photographic memes) is an effective way to encourage mastery complex concepts and critical thinking skills. Inviting students to articulate new ideas visually can foreground relationships between new and pre-existing knowledge. Research supports the development of teaching and assessment strategies that incorporate the visual. This is consistent with a critical pedagogy that addresses the student as more than an empty receptacle for authoritative and unchallengeable knowledge.

Broadcasting from the Antarctic: The Second Byrd Expedition
Early Arctic and Antarctic explorers took along film and photography professionals to document their expeditions. In the mid-1920s, the effort to communicate by radio or shortwave with Arctic explorers began. Then in 1933, the first full-scale effort to broadcast for the public began from the Antarctic. The Second Byrd Antarctic Expedition transmitted via Shortwave radio over 10,000 miles to CBS in New York who then aired a 30-minute program once per week to their listening audience. The broadcast was both a vehicle through which the expedition was supported and a public relations blitz to ensure public support for Byrd’s Antarctic Exploits. General Foods, through their Grape Nuts Cereal product sponsored the broadcasts and provided large quantities of the cereal for the expedition. They benefited through the use of in-store displays connecting their product with the program and urging listeners to mail in box tops for premium gifts. A newspaper was printed in four editions during the expedition called the South Pole Radio News, and was used to encourage listening and to supplement the information heard on the program.

What’s at stake for broadcasters, telecommunications carriers, the government and the public as we get closer to the FCC’s “forward and reverse” auctions for current broadcast spectrum? Will the timetables hold? What levels of monetary reimbursement are expected – and needed – for a successful process? What about spectrum “repacking” and the service areas of individual TV broadcast stations, regardless of whether they participate at all in the auction process? Will broadcasters and wireless carriers be able to agree on contour prediction software? Who will be the winners and losers? And by how much? Can this auction process really work and yield the government’s desired result? These and more questions will be answered by a panel comprised of communications law and policy experts.

Structuring a Participatory Audience: Locating Synthesis and Integration in Communication and Technology Research
Emerging technologies transform increasing power to media users. However, individuals continue to function within structures of time, cost, and resources. This panel aims to bring scholars’ attention to an often-overlooked aspect in communication and technology research – structure. This panel will examine interactive media use and impacts from a structural view. Panelists argue that structures are not fixed, but active and multidimensional. Different conceptualizations of structure will be addressed.

The framing of Black and Brown childhood in the the mobile Twittersphere
As mobile technology plays a larger role in everyday life, web applications have adapted. As such one can tweet from their mobile device from anywhere, and say anything. As such the attacks on black and brown children that were once reserved for snide commentary behind backs have gained a permanent place in modern culture, e.g. Twitter and Facebook comments about Quavanzhane Wallis, Trayvon Martin and the Hunger Games movie.

ASC Cinematography Workshop with Dean Cundey, ASC

The ASC's annual Cinematography Workshop will explore the opportunities of filmmaking with today's hottest technology. In conjunction with the American Society of Cinematographers, this workshop will introduce you in an intimate setting to this year’s guest, Dean Cundey, ASC.

Cundey first attracted widespread attention when he collaborated with John Carpenter on the production of Halloween (1978). The two filmmakers continued to work together on such memorable films as The Fog, Escape from New York, The Thing, Halloween II and III, and Big Trouble in Little China.

For his work on Robert Zemeckis’ landmark, live-action film Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), Cundey garnered both Oscar and BAFTA nominations. Zemeckis and Cundey also teamed up on the beloved Back to the Future trilogy, Romancing the Stone, and Death Becomes Her. Cundey earned his first nomination from his peers at the ASC for Steven Spielberg’s Hook (1991), and a second one for his gripping imagery of Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 (1995). He also earned the Society of Operating Cameraman’s President’s Award in 1999.

Cundey’s credits also include such notable films as Jurassic Park, What Women Want, Garfield, The Holiday, The Spy Next Door, Jack and Jill, Crazy Kind of Love, and the upcoming releases Walking with the Enemy and Carry Me Home.

“Dean has continually raised the bar with his magnificent imagery, and I’m certain he will continue to do so for many years to come,” says ASC Awards Chairman Lowell Peterson. “He has compiled an incomparable body of work that has made a meaningful and indelible impression on the art of filmmaking. This award is a symbol of our respect and admiration for both the man and his work.”

The Sports and Radio Love Affair in the 21st Century: How Internet Radio Is Keeping the Spark Alive
It was not very long after Frank Conrad’s KDKA began broadcasting on November 2, 1920, that sports and radio fell in love with one another. Listening to blow-by-blow accounts of heavyweight prize fights and hearing the scores of the World Series were just the start of an ongoing relationship that has sustained itself for nearly a century. Internet radio and other online content providers are the latest chaperones for sports and radio. This panel will discuss how colleges and universities can capitalize on the long-term commitment between sports and radio through Internet-only radio stations and other online outlets.
