Sybril_BennettDr. Sybril Bennett, professor of journalism, presented two workshops at the Alabama Broadcasters’ Association in Birmingham, Ala. She used her Seven Elements of Innovation framework: problem, principle, purpose, perspective, pioneering, passion and play to analyze TV news reporting and producing and she also conducted a session on social media strategies for newsrooms.

Bennett also had an opinion editorial published on addressing the aftermath of media magnate Russell Simmons’ decision to publish a sex tape parody of Harriet Tubman on YouTube.  Her piece is entitled, “In honor of Harriet Tubman, Pre-Internet Innovator.” The post includes an excerpt from her book, “Innovate: Lessons from the Underground Railroad” regarding Tubman’s leadership.
