Abstract / Description

The module Multimedia Journalism was first designed and delivered in spring semester 2011. A major redesign was not foreseen because the module was relatively new, and had seemed generally to work well. However, the rapid changes - technological, editorial, and economic - currently underway in journalism (Hesmondhalgh, 2007; Beckett, 2008; Shirky 2008; Albertazzi and Cobley, 2009; Williams, 2011) meant that there was an argument for frequent examination of course materials to see that they remained as relevant as possible. In terms of Toohey’s Course Design Process, the module was at the latter part of Stage 6, ‘evaluate and adjust components as necessary’ (1999:21). This paper describes the rationale behind the evaluation and the evaluation process that took place.
