This course focuses on the future skills that journalism graduates need to be industry ready. This means mastering skills in and developing a critical approach to audio, visual and verbal forms of journalistic production. By experimenting with visual and audio storytelling, the specific aim of this course is to produce material ready for radio- and television-style news items. Special attention is given to new forms and styles of journalism emerging on the internet, where audio, visual, verbal and interactive elements combine in innovative ways to tell newsworthy multi-semiotic stories. As journalist, videographer, sound engineer, producer and editor, future journalists need to display greater flexibility and a degree of experimentation in their news gathering practices. This course provides students with the opportunity to develop these skills, and to add value to the information they gather, both in terms of producing compelling stories and in experimenting with multiplatform news gathering and dissemination practices.
