The Journalism + Design toolkit includes resources for educators to spur thought and action when working with students.

The toolkit includes resources for instruction, curriculum design, and assessment. Journalism educators can use them to plan classes, support student projects, or just learn more about this approach. Working journalists might also find them useful.

These open educational resources are free for you to use, adapt or remix. We invite you to share your feedback or suggest new resources by mentioning @journodesign on Twitter or by sending us an email.
