University media curriculum

Our Watch has developed a suite of curriculum materials to support teaching of best practice reporting on violence against women.

Students sitting in a lecture theatre listening to a lecturer giving a presentation.

This curriculum was developed by educators, in consultation with the Dart Centre Asia-Pacific, the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Advancing Journalism and the Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria, with input from the Our Watch media Fellows.

These materials are designed for Australian tertiary institutions. Adapting the materials to suit your needs is encouraged.

The resources include lesson materials, breakout materials, reading lists and assignments.

Watch ‘Behind Closed Doors’ for tips to ensure reporting is part of the solution to violence against women and their children.
