Syllabus Exchange

Sponsored by BEA

The Syllabus Exchange, in partnership with the Broadcast Education Association, gives educators a way to enhance their curriculum by sharing ideas and teaching materials. Our goal is to provide a database of course syllabi, assignments, exercises and other teaching materials that can be shared. Our focus is in the area of journalism, electronic media and communication studies. We welcome not only editorial-sequence syllabi but also those from related fields, such as advertising and public relations. We also welcome high school and other teachers.

While we review each upload for appropriate content, we don't edit or warrant the material.

Here's how it works. When you share a syllabus, assignment or other teaching material, you'll receive 100 Poynter NewsU Training Points. To download a training resource, you will need 50 points [for each resource]. To get everyone started, we are giving every registered user at Poynter's NewsU 100 points. That means you can download two resources before you start sharing.

  • Digital Media Literacy

    Digital Media Literacy is a hybrid hands-on introductory course comprised of video lectures, tutorials, assignments, readings, quizzes and discussion forums that we will use to help you learn the essential concepts, techniques, and skills to acquire the communications and life skills necessary for full participation in our media-saturated, information-rich society. This course will examine the computer as a medium. Hands-on learning will provide the technical skills to survive in our new digital culture, while critical readings and assignments will offer the cognitive skills to understand it.

    The Internet has become a game-changer for journalists and the profession of journalism. Its influence has profoundly changed the role of journalists and changed the job of newsgathering and dissemination. It has also changed the relationship between news organizations and their readership. But amid turmoil, opportunities always arise. This class will examine how to harness emerging trends that impact the craft of journalism.
