Teaching Materials

As part of our civic and educational engagement, we have worked along other relevant stakeholders (e.g., educators, students, NGO, teaching experts, etc.) in the co-creation of teaching materials on gender issues.

This fruitful collaboration is still ongoing. More materials will be added soon.

This unit of work explore how the news media create newsworthy stories our of events and happenings in the world. The focus throughout the unit is on developing an understanding of the discursive construction of news values, with a particular emphasis on language and news photography and how they contribute to the construction of newsworthiness in hard news stories in the news media.
