Teaching PR News Sources on Twitter in PR Education

IMG_8732As a public relations educator, I find that the world changes around us faster than I know how to teach it.  In my Introduction to Public Relations course this afternoon at Olivet Nazarene University, I provided my students with a laundry list of “Public Relations News” sources.

Here is the list of news sources I provided.  The students understand that this is just a start for sources:

IMG_8734Then, we had a friendly competition (PR kids love contests) to see who could find the most Twitter accounts who provide the following content:  PR news sources, resources, job and intern opportunities, trends, etc.
The students had 20 minutes in teams of 2 or 3 to search Twitter and the web to find sources.  Within that 20 minutes, they had to write all of their Twitter accounts they found on the white board.

IMG_8735As the teams worked together, they came up with an impressive number of sources.  In the end, I typed the list of Twitter accounts they came up with, took out the duplicate accounts that multiple teams discovered and created a list with 100 Twitter accounts on it.  For a 50 minute class, this exercise is great to introduce students to resources past the classroom.  Great work guys!
