Description

This subject provides students with hands-on experience in digital storytelling, expanding on the use of text, audio and video towards newer forms such as mobile and virtual/augmented reality. Under expert guidance, students produce a portfolio of journalistic work that places a high value on experimentation, innovation and immersive storytelling. Students engage in research, reflection and analysis to examine issues that emerge from their own reporting, the work of colleagues and industry best practices. They are encouraged to use short- and long-form techniques, and experiment with using other attributes of contemporary media to create new journalistic experiences.
