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.

  • Simple Multimedia Rubric

    A: Ready for publication or broadcast. Shows mastery of facts and elements and good understanding of the language of the image. Story is compelling, original and makes good use of audio and video components to tell it. A-/B+: Accurate, contains all relevant material but may lack maximum precision and clarity in storytelling and some minor production errors. May have spelling or grammar errors in text, lighting and sound problems in images and footage.

    You need more userpoints to download files. Earn userpoints by uploading teaching resources.
