BRO2026 Finding Context in Reportage
Credit Points: 15
This unit develops the student’s awareness of, and need for, contextual knowledge and understanding when approaching information from a story-telling perspective in broadcast journalism. It hones critiquing skills and encourages students to challenge assumptions – their own and others – to successfully relay a story in ‘real world’ conditions. Students acquire research, information-gathering and editorial decision-making skills as they take a “big-picture” approach to identifying stories and explore how best to present them to a target audience.
