In the section, you will find a range of curriculum resources for use by journalism and public relations educators.

Lecturer notes and student notes are provided for each of the case studies. The lecturer notes contain a guide for class activities and for assessing students' work.

In particular, the resource guide “Fact or Fiction?” provides a good overview of the issues students need to be aware of.
