This diploma is taught by academics who have significant experience of working in journalism. Their combined professional experience covers print, audio, video and data journalism, specialist reporting, and news organisation management.
The face-to-face curriculum uses a variety of learning and teaching approaches, with a particular focus on the practical production of journalism where theory is embedded within the projects. At times students will work with industry professionals producing work that is distributed in the Australian media.
Assessments are directly related to industry-specific needs and may involve contacting industry practitioners regarding contemporary issues.
Most of the assessment is ongoing throughout the semester and is designed to allow formative feedback on strengths and areas for improvement. This approach will enable you to improve on your performance during the subject, as well as to continue to refine capabilities for your future professional practice and learning after graduation
