‘News literacy’ is a relatively well-established term in some parts of the world, notably the USA. It has risen to prominence in the UK more recently with debates at government level around a need for digital literacy education as a response to concerns around online mis- and dis-information. One voice largely absent from this debate is that of journalism educators. With this in mind, the authors set out to map news literacy teaching within HE journalism courses in the UK. Primary research was conducted between September 2018 and May 2019 using questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. This paper will include details of our findings and reflections on the development of an educators’ network and/ or suite of resources.
