A free open-access teaching resource that helps prepare your journalism students to deal with online abuse
Leeds Trinity University MA Journalism programme leader Jenny Kean and Yorkshire Evening Post senior reporter Abbey Maclure have been developing their research paper on online abuse that was published in the AJE journal.
They have created a teaching resource to help prepare journalism students on how to protect themselves and be resilient in the face of the increasing threat of online attacks.
The pair have published a series of short, animated videos (all under 2 minutes long) that are available for all journalism tutors to use in their teaching.
There are five in total, four of which sum up the advice and tips they got from their interviews with industry professionals, and a fifth video that gives a bit more context around their research. The videos are available in their social media channels but have also been collated below for members:
