Teaching Journalism During our Disruptive Age

An opportunity to pool the best education practices worldwide

Journalism education is currently facing unprecedented upheavals. After having constantly adapted the curricula since the ‘90s to meet the media industry’s demands, journalism schools now have to face a double challenge; both new expectations of journalism students concerning what should be taught in a journalism school, as well as the actual academic teaching methods themselves.

These major foreseeable evolutions illustrate that journalism schools could well be on the verge of radically changing the way they teach journalism.

Digitalization of contents will either lead to a deeper digital divide between journalism schools of different locations and different continents or, conversely, to a historical opportunity to pool the best education practices worldwide.

A few examples of issues that will be adressed
