Downtown Oshawa News
The Downtown Oshawa News (DON) blog is a hyperlocal blog that covers the news that matters to those who live, work, study or have fun in downtown Oshawa. It’s also a place to bring to light issues not always covered by the mainstream media and, as well, provide a voice to those who care about this area.
Anna Rodrigues developed the DON as a project-based learning experience for students in the Journalism program. Working as multimedia journalists, the students write online stories, take images, produce video and create slideshows that reflect the communities within downtown Oshawa. This project was developed with funding provided by the Durham College Research Fund and the Durham College Innovation Fund.
