JxD: Journalism Design

A research project about reinventing journalism


The JxD Project

This is the website for the Journalism Design project at the University of Queensland. The project aims to develop a process for designing for journalistic values. It is being developed for a third-year undergraduate course that teaches students to think like designers and create ideas for journalistic tech. The project is supported by the university’s Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation. The process will consist of a downloadable template and learning resources, and will be available on this website under a Creative Commons license. The project will run throughout 2017 and we will post updates on this site from time to time. To find out more, get in touch.
