This course provides students with a hands-on introduction to reporting, writing, recording and presenting journalism for a variety of media platforms. Through independent work (or teamwork as appropriate), students will develop and improve individual skills in journalistic practice for the packaging of news content. Students will be required to think independently, refine their news sense, and operate within the community as journalists. They will further develop interview techniques, voice production, and editorial decision-making, and will also examine the ethical and professional issues surrounding digital journalism's new technologies and the demands of an increasingly competitive industry.
