Welcome to the Downtown Oshawa News (DON) blog.
The DON 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, a Durham College Journalism professor, developed the DON as a project-based learning experience for students in the 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. We would also like to acknowledge the support of the Dean and Associate Dean of the Media, Art & Design department, Greg Murphy and Charlotte Hale.
