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.

  • Media Ethics

    3 people liked this.

    Journalism is a profession with ethics and deadlines at its core. Journalists often must make split-second decisions about issues – whether to show footage of an accident victim, to publish sensitive military information or to pursue a story that could end an official’s career. This course will analyze media ethics cases, including some of the most well known incidents of the past 50 years. This course will also examine the views of various philosophers and their approach to ethics, therefore providing an ethical framework in which to make and analyze decisions.
