The syndicates are small, themed discussion groups that produce recommendations to help improve journalism education worldwide. They encourage all WJEC conference-goers to join themed discussion groups of their choosing.
Each syndicate team is asked to analyze its topic and make recommendations for its colleagues across the globe. The discussion groups focus on some of the most urgent, important issues in journalism education today.
Rapporteurs summarize the findings, and WJEC publishes them online and elsewhere when possible.
