Build things. Get credit. Join us to build new tools and tell new stories.
Knight Lab is offering a course for academic credit. Each quarter, multidisciplinary teams of students, faculty, and professionals come together to collaborate with the Knight Lab to produce cutting-edge digital work, research, thought—innovating across every part of the journalistic process. The Student Lab places journalism and computer science students at the center of an important problem for the future of media, rapidly moving beyond conversation and hypothesis to well-reasoned action.
Our process combines research, design thinking, building, user testing, critical and analytical work, storytelling, cutting-edge technology, and experimentation—often within the confines of a single, specific problem. This class is a team-based, cooperative lab experience for students to create and explore new tools, stories, story forms, and physical devices. The class is cross-listed as JOUR 390
and GEN_ENG 395
In Spring 2017, teams will be exploring audience engagement, chat-based user interfaces, data visualization design, sensor journalism, storytelling with 360° video, and 3D photo journalism.
