The Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley is seeking part-time instructors to provide online course delivery of the following 3-unit courses during the Spring 2021 semester:
J222 Interactive Narratives - 33% time appointment (3 teaching hrs/wk)
J298 Data Journalism - 33% time appointment (3 teaching hrs/wk)
This course focuses on the basics of Data Journalism as a branch of investigative reporting. The candidate will be asked to focus emphatically on accountability reporting through data-driven journalism, and to be proficient in teaching students how to mine datasets for stories that are compelling, authoritative, and ground-breaking. The course should provide students with technical expertise in statistics, open source (OSINT) investigations, data cleaning/analysis, and web scraping, and software such as R Studio, Python, SQL, spreadsheets, OpenRefine, Machine Learning, GIS, or SPSS/PSPP. In addition, the course should focus on the fundamental principles of data analysis and visual presentation, and how to acquire, process and “interview” data.
J298 Race and Journalism - 33% time appointment (3 teaching hrs/wk)
This lecture course will expose our students to a critical examination of how race is covered in the journalistic news media. This course will tackle ethical dilemmas that arise in race-related coverage, and engage students in activities to explore their own implicit biases, identity, and privileges. This course may also examine the notion of journalistic objectivity in an age when race and identity issues have been thrust into the forefront of the public's consciousness.
These teaching positions are expected to deliver the specified hours of online course delivery per week for the Spring semester. In addition to teaching responsibilities, general duties include holding remote office hours, assigning grades, advising students, preparing course materials (e.g., syllabus), and maintaining a course website.
