“Slow Journalism in a Fast World: The Out of Eden Experiment” is an intensive special topics undergraduate seminar inaugurated at Virginia Commonwealth University in the spring of 2014. Taught by Don Belt, students at the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture developed their multimedia storytelling skills by using Paul Salopek’s Out of Eden Walk as a narrative model. Students were divided into reporting teams that developed narrative projects of their own in the city of Richmond, Virginia, which are presented here. Students also used the hashtag #vcuwalk on their social media feeds related to the course.
