DMRC researcher selected for innovative digital curriculum fellowship

The DMRC’s Dr T.J. Thomson was one of two dozen academics announced in April as members of the 2022 fellowship class of the PhDigital Bootcamp, delivered by Texas State University and sponsored by the Knight Foundation.

The six-week fellowship program, now in its fourth year, aims to cultivate digital scholar-educators who can lead curriculum innovation. The bootcamp is organized around concepts and skills associated with managing digital products, such as audience analysis and emerging technologies, immersive storytelling, data analytics and visualization, digital strategy, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, social media, virtual reality, drones, and bots.

Dr Thomson was one of three fellows outside of North America selected to join this year’s fellowship class and is looking forward to joining an international community of practice centred on innovative approaches to teaching journalism and media subjects in the digital age.
