Learning Objectives

This course aims not only to foster a knowledge of the specific subject matter of journalism in theoretical form but also to provide the tools for its practical application, that is, in translating the ability to understand into a critical approach and autonomy of judgment so as not to passively “suffer” information transmitted by the various, countless media sources. The ability to learn is connected in the appropriate use of language with respect to the discipline and in the ability to interact between source and user, through knowledge of the rules, rights and duties of both parties involved.

· How information languages are changing; from Gutenberg to online information; 

· Writing technique, rules, settings and the most common errors;

· Substantive truth of facts and putative truth;

· Interview techniques in the various media, agency journalism and press offices;

· Judicial reporting;

· The potential of the web and the role of social media;

· Fake news, post-truth, misinformation and disinformation;

· Standards and codes of ethics; information and privacy, the role of information: responsibilities and duties;

Assessment

The course will conclude with a pre-examination exercise and then verification of learning through an individual oral exam based on the reference texts for the exam. These are aimed at assessing both the student’s learning of the content and his or her ability to rework and argue. There is the possibility of submitting a written paper, on a topic agreed with the lecturer, regarding an in-depth study of a particular specificity of the subject. The student’s ability for analytical and critical thinking will be evaluated.

Excellent grades: the student’s possession of good critical and in-depth skills; the ability to link together the main themes addressed in the course; the use of appropriate language with respect to the specificity of the discipline.

Good grades: the student’s possession of a mnemonic knowledge of the contents; a relative critical ability and ability to connect the topics covered: the use of appropriate language.

Sufficient grades: the student’s attainment of a minimal knowledge of the topics covered, even though there are some formative gaps; the use of inappropriate language.

Low/negative grades: difficulty in the student’s orientation to the topics addressed in the examination texts; formative gaps; the use of inappropriate language.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
