Credits: 1 TO 4

This course – reserved for New School Free Press editors – will cover the art of editing and managing journalists in a newsroom context. The Free Press is the New School's student-run newspaper, covering the campus community and catering to the interests of New School students. In this course, students will learn about the various aspects of leading a newsroom. We will first learn about how to form a mature understanding of your audience and how to develop a coverage plan for that audience across various mediums. We will hear from newsroom leaders about how they empower their teams to execute on their team's goals. And we will learn how to offer constructive feedback on tight deadlines, whether that is a news story or a data visualization. Other topics we will cover are: bulletproofing a story, developing your publication's brand, expanding your newsroom to other platforms, and managing newsroom conflicts. By the end of the course, students will have a greater understanding of how to lead a real newsroom that serves its community. You must have instructor permission to enroll in this course.
