Subject Description
This subject enables students, working in groups, to develop multimedia storytelling packages, which bring together and demonstrate the suite of skills they have learned in their previous journalism subjects. The focus is on the groupís development of either long form narratives or a coherent series of shorter works. A lecture series will complement the group project work exploring advanced discussions of narrative storytelling techniques and theories. This subject requires the careful selection of a narrative project, to be supported by meticulous research and cooperative teamwork. It is to be delivered in a manner that balances editorial and ethical constraints with imaginative exploitation of the aesthetic and technical principles of the selected media forms. The final project will be presented online.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Identify an appropriate and engaging topic for an in-depth narrative project
2. Collaborate effectively with group members to develop complementary multimedia aspects of the project to their fullest potential
3. Undertake detailed research, through both identification and analysis of secondary data and original in-depth interviews
4. Identify and deploy an appropriate mix of multimedia formats to produce a coherent and engaging body of work which tells a chosen story from a number of angles
5. Produce an effective and appealing online presentation of the project

Textbook Information
Students will be advised of recommended texts at the commencement of session.
