Journalist's Resource: Syllabi

Journalism educators and enthusiasts looking for resources to teach or self-study may enjoy the Syllabi Archives from Journalist's Resource. This "open-access online reference desk" is a collaboration between the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy (a branch of Harvard's Kennedy School) and the Carnegie-Knight Initiative (a branch of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, created to "promote excellence in journalism and the success of the communities in which they worked,"). As of this write-up, the collection contains syllabi for 12 different courses, covering topics such as "Feature writing: Crafting research-based stories with character, development and a structural arc" and "Digital media and society: Covering social media, technology and a networked world." After clicking on a class of interest, users will be guided through course learning objectives, suggested readings, assignments, and a weekly breakdown by topic. While the Syllabi Archives section hasn't been updated since 2017, the resource as a whole seeks to "curate, summarize, and contextualize high-quality research on newsy public policy topics," and includes several other timely tips and guides that are frequently refreshed.
