Robert Hernandez, aka WebJournalist, is an Associate Professor of Professional Practice at USC Annenberg, but he’s not an academic… he’s more of a “hackademic” who specializes in “MacGyvering” digital journalism through emerging technologies. He and his students produce VR experiences under their brand: JOVRNALISM™, and their work has won awards from the Online News Association, and the Society for News Design, among others. Hernandez is also the co-founder of #wjchat and co-creator of the Diversify Journalism Project. He is the recipient of SPJ’s 2015 Distinguished Teaching in Journalism Award. He connects dots and people.
