Journalism Education Resources for Sustaining Democracy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Learning journalistic skills and values increases civic participation and brings new voices into the conversation about sustaining our democracy. We also believe that design and systems thinking are powerful tools for grappling with uncertainty, not only with respect to the future of journalism but the dilemmas facing our information ecosystem, contemporary society and the planet.

Journalism + Design has developed a set of resources for developing the skills, values, and habits of mind required for practicing journalism in the 21st century, and has adapted these resources for remote education. Our gallery will showcase the exercises, assignments, and materials that have been developed for educators leading student newsrooms, journalism courses, and journalism-adjacent courses such as English composition, digital humanities, communications, and sociology.

Learning Outcomes: Journalism + Design faculty will introduce session attendees to materials, exercises, and assignments that introduce design, systems thinking, and playful pedagogy to journalism and journalism-adjacent courses.
