Instructors preparing for digital journalism courses may borrow some ideas from similar courses taught at peer institutions – here is a collection of such courses that I came across as they link to posts on my blog as tutorials or reading materials.
These courses were offered in 2013-2014 school year and, at time of writing, are still available in the form of a course website, which usually features syllabus, weekly blog posts, assignments and other activities.
