Media in a Time of Change

Beth Robinson

Beth A. Robinson, MS, Instructor/Chair, Communication Media Arts, 845-574-4425

Intended Audience: Adults who want a better understanding of how the media, which has traditionally informed them and shaped their world view, is changing; why, how and what they can do to continue to enjoy media and be an informed citizen.

Abstract: In this changing media landscape, how can the typical adult in their 40s, 50s and 60s move successfully to online places. Traditional newspaper and radio stations that have been your life long companions are moving to the digital world (yes, I know, you love the morning paper--I do too!). You can begin to explore the wide world of online content, which includes the things you already enjoy, and so much more. Do not be afraid! You can get there from here.
