New London — In the latest collaboration involving two of the city’s venerable institutions, Peter Huoppi, The Day’s multimedia director, has begun teaching a journalism course at Connecticut College.
Titled “Media Ethics in the Digital Age,” the class met for the first time Wednesday evening and promises to deal with issues Huoppi confronts nearly every day in producing and editing content for the newspaper and its website.
“I’m hoping these students are willing to have their ideas challenged — and be willing to challenge mine. I expect to learn, too,” said Huoppi, the college’s first Bodenwein Fellow, named for Theodore Bodenwein, The Day’s publisher from 1891 to 1939.
Conn President Katherine Bergeron said the Bodenwein Fellowship is designed “to create opportunities for The Day’s professionals to teach their craft to the growing number of students on our campus who are passionate about journalism.”
