Foundations of Interactive Journalism

This course introduces students to the disruptive technological innovations that have transformed the journalism industry in the past 20 years, and pushes students to identify trends that could potentially shake things up in the coming years. With a balanced mix of contextual readings, lectures, discussions, and simulations, students will explore these technologies through several lenses: information gathering, storytelling, production, dissemination, and consumption. Hands-on technical training in HTML and CSS will begin to give students tools to build web-based journalism projects.

Note: For students in the Politics, Policy and Foreign Affairs specialization, this course is taught in Washington.
