New PR and Marketing Students blogs

network_spheresFollowing last year’s large number of students attending the PR and New Media module, Leeds Metropolitan University is running it again with students from MA PR, MSc Marketing and Business. I was invited to run and facilitate this year’s module and I am very confident we’ve got a very capable and enthusiastic cohort. Once again it will be a great opportunity to learn together in an exciting collaborative environment. Check below the new bloggers starting their journey in the blogosphere.

Richard Bailey run the module last year and managed to attract some attention to the fact his students were starting to use blogs. There are some good discussions taking place online on forums and social networks involving students, practitioners and academics. PRopenMic is one good example of a social network which is growing organically at a fast pace by word-of-mouth and attracting a big number of students. I believe universities should really encourage their students to blog. Stephen Davies wrote a post commenting on last year’s students blogging initiative. In an earlier post (Where are all the student PR bloggers?) he mentioned about the apparent lack of PR students bloggers.
