Philadelphia Neighborhoods - Temple's Multimedia Urban Reporting Lab
What’s the concept?
Becoming a journalist is an active process, not just passive consumption of course material. Temple University journalism students work in a newsroom setting where they participate in all aspects of news production: print, broadcast, Web and digital media. Students experience news gathering, production and dissemination of news, in a converged media environment, where they can experiment with new ways of telling stories.
What’s the mission?
Philadelphia Neighborhoods is the cornerstone of the Department of Journalism’s mission to better tell stories in the undercovered and underserved neighborhoods of Philadelphia. Students tell the stories that represent the diverse voices of the multicultural and multinational Philadelphia neighborhoods. Each semester students concentrate their news coverage in a targeted Philadelphia neighborhood, and then provide it with topical information and news from the community. Philadelphia Neighborhoods provides a form of hyper-local coverage missing from our urban communities: journalism street by street.

The program offers students the opportunity to cover Philadelphia with up close reporting. I especially find their treatment of technology issues to be exciting. They cover people using and building technology.
Of course I just might be a little biased since they have written so nicely about NTR!
