Name: Andy Bechtel From: UNC-Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States About me: I teach editing and writing at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at UNC-Chapel Hill. I'm interested in new ways to tell news stories and in the ethical and political ramifications of word choices (terrorist surveillance program, domestic spying or something in between?).
I have 12 years of experience in newspaper editing, most recently at The News & Observer in Raleigh, N.C.
Tom Bowers, a former colleague at UNC-Chapel Hill who retired last year, has started a blog about teaching. It promises to be a valuable resource for those in the classroom now, either full time or on the side, and those considering it.
