The Ashoka Conversation is designed as a a 200 level course to give students a hands on learning experience in conceptualizing, designing and editorial framing of a weekly digital news magazine. This is an ambitious course that seeks to put in place the structure and production of a live media resource entirely run by Ashoka Students. Students who enroll in this course will ‘learn on the job’. Through the rigor of academic discipline and the commitment of journalistic integrity students will run a weekly Multi-media blog project on the lines of the internationally acclaimed website “The Conversation” that was set up as a non-profit network that publishes in depth news stories and content. Though the semester, students will be taught editorial decision making, ideating thematically for an issue, creating content themselves as well as commissioning articles through the University based on the specific editorial requirements for each issue.
