Mosaic moves online
More than 500 high school students have participated in the Mosaic journalism program since its inception in 1993. Since that time, the program has gone through a number of iterations in the face of changing needs, and 2020 is just such a time.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mosaic has moved into remote reporting and writing. We ran a small online-only pilot program in the spring, and taking what we learned we are currently running our full summer session entirely on Zoom
The pilot included four instructors who adapted the program to fit online parameters and four students who learned the nuts and bolts of reporting, interviewing and writing stories remotely.
The bios of the students in the spring pilot are below, and their work is published on this website.
Our objective to train tomorrow's journalists, whether in person or online, remains steady and strong. As the realities of the pandemic evolve, we will make decisions about the best way to move forward, so stand by.
