Open Journalism & the Open Web

Course organiser: Phillip Smith
About the Course Organiser: 

Hacks/Hackers, Mozilla, Medill, and others have teamed up with t to run a six-week peer-to-peer course for "hacks" and hackers. The overall theme of the course will be "Open Journalism on the Open Web," and -- being a peer-to-peer course that is all about "open" -- we need your involvement to make the course a success.

As part of Mozilla's ongoing work to keep the web open, we've been supporting a number of exciting education projects through the Mozilla Drumbeat initiative. We are partnering with Peer-to-Peer University (P2PU) to create the School of Webcraft -- the ultimate environment in which to learn the craft of open and standards-based web development. And P2PU also has a shared interest in journalism -- and recently offered a Digital Journalism course with Joi Ito of the Keio Graduate School of Media Design.

The  Open Journalism on the Open Web course is an outcome from the Future of News and Civic Media 2010 event. This is a Knight Foundation supported initiative.

Can hacks and hackers work together in the new online news world?
Tweet

Summary

Hacks/Hackers, Mozilla, the Medill School of Journalism, The Media Consortium and others are teaming up to develop a solid six-week online curriculum that will benefit both "hacks" and hackers (that's journalists & programmers, in plain English). Each week the course will focus on a different topic, and each week the participants will be joined by a different subject-matter expert (or two) from the field of news innovation. The course readings, online participation, and a seminar are expected to require roughly 4-6 hours per week.

The topics that are currently in development are:

  1. The fundamentals of journalism and the Open Web
  2. Project management
  3. Edit it. Fork it. The art of collaboration and journalism
  4. Big Ugly Datasets For Thumb-Fingered Journalists
  5. Business Model for Journalism
  6. Data journalism and government

This is a Knight Foundation supported initiative.

I am interested in the course but dont want to take up one of the 40 spots. I would fall in the journalist:inexperienced catagory. Wil the course info be archived so that I might review/learn the material presented without taking up a spot? THanks for the info. DB

Hey there DB,

Yes, indeed, the course will be archived and "open" to all. Regardless, I would encourage you to apply and we'll see if it's a good fit. :-)

Phillip.
