The JxD project aims to develop a process for teaching students to design for journalistic values.
The Journalism Design course aims to teach interaction design to journalists. Over a 13-week semester, students research, design and prototyp a solution to a journalistic issue.

Journalism needs some new ideas. It needs new practices, formats and platforms. And it needs its own people to invent them. To be able to manipulate and control them.

My NewsCube project has won a Walkley Innovation Grant. The project was one of six projects in the running for a share of $40,000 in seed funding to develop the project.
