This course provides you with practical skills in the capture and packaging of sound (voice and ambient sound) and image (moving images) in an online journalistic context. Future journalists will be expected to enter the profession with a 'grab bag' of skills across the written, visual and aural modes, and will also be required to be able to produce 'packaged' stories for publication on a variety of platforms. With a strong skills focus, this course provides you with hands-on experience with equipment for sound capture, image capture and online publishing. It will also expose you to deadline-driven assessments (starting in Week 1 and continuing on a weekly basis), set to emulate the intense and demanding working environment of multi-skilled journalists. Legal, professional and ethical issues in relation to broadcast journalistic practice will also be discussed.
