Course Description The world of media continues to change quickly. Legacy media outlets are struggling with their role in this new world and working to make more use of technology. Media starts ups find it hard to build audience, get sustained attention and establish credibility. Everyone worries about how they will be able to fund newsgathering and what future business models will look like. This course will explore some of the possibilities for innovation and discuss how new practices can help address some of the difficulties faced by journalists. We will consider what it takes to create new sites or tools that can actually find funding and we will meet different journalists and experts involved in some of the projects springing up around the world. By the end of this course, students will understand the basics of some media theory and scholarship and be able to speak knowledgably about the journalism climate in many different countries. Students will also be familiar with some of the changes brought about by technological innovation as well as how to analyze the successes and failures.
