In this paper, I discuss cases and problem-based approaches in the teaching of college-level courses in digital media and interface design. I provide teaching and learning case examples used in classroom learning within a journalism and multimedia arts curriculum. In addition, I examine the diverse and emergent nature of today’s interfaces and explore the premise that digital interfaces instigate tectonic shifts in human behavior, and the preparation and distribution of informational content; influences that have important ramifications for educators who endeavor to provide digital media and interface design students relevant learning experiences in the dynamic and emergent landscape of today’s digital interfaces. The topics covered in the paper pertain to interface design in general. However, particular focus will be given to news interfaces and teaching interface design and development in the context of the journalism and multimedia arts curriculum.
