News, Narrative & Design I

Fall 2019

Taught By: Tyler Kelley

Section: A

CRN: 2818

Credits: 4

This is the first course in a 3-course sequence that introduces students to journalism, which plays a crucial role in a democratic society. This Level 1 class will focus on a bottom-up approach to reporting, using human-centered design practices where appropriate, to identify the informational needs and concerns of a community. Through real, project-based work, students will research, report, and present the news while considering how to engage their audience and have impact. Students will also be introduced to the complexity and competitiveness of the 21st-century media ecosystem. You will work hard. You will make mistakes. You may be uncomfortable, sometimes even afraid. You will intensify your sense of curiosity. You will learn how to sift good information from bad, conduct interviews, fact-check, and make sense of data. You will learn to embrace an absolute obligation to the truth. Cooperation and collaboration are integral to this course. Reporters do not work alone. Your coursemates are your partners; you will help to shape each other's work.
