CJB301 International Newsdesk

This capstone unit situates you in the newsroom for the production of long and short form news items with an international outlook and sources. This experience in an international multimedia newsroom demands that social and cultural issues be addressed, such as language and time barriers, in addition to practical, legal, ethical, and creative demands. You will take on new roles as part of a production team, publishing to a real audience via digital news outlets. Journalists need to be able to respond to the new demands of globalised world and an increasingly integrated international media landscape. You must also engage with the changing culture and values of countries you report from and about. By exploring political, economic, historic and other social influences on the roles, rights and expectations of journalists in different countries, you learn to adapt to other circumstances.
