UniPollWatch: Monash journalism and 27 other unis cover the 2016 election

More than 100 Monash journalism student reporters contributed to the coverage of the recent marathon Australian general election campaign. I was the Monash campus and Victoria state co-editor in this Australia first (and as far as we know world-first) project.

In total we published 674 stories during the campaign, including election day coverage. Several hundred student reporters were involved during the eight weeks led by journalism lecturers from 28 Australian universities. Read more about the project here and have a look at UniPollWatch here.
