Integrated Journalism in Europe
The project promotes 3 basic factors to consider in journalism education today: The convergence of media; the relationship between universities and media outlets; and professional simulation.
Objectives and Content
The project aims at defining best practice "integrated journalism" by
- Analyzing existing journalism educations in Europe
- Interviewing editors, researchers and journalism teachers
- Conducting literature reviews
We apply a broad definition of Integrated Journalism being a digital news platform integrating text, video, audio, photo and other elements.
The research on European best practices will lead to a set of recommendations for the teaching of integrated journalism and on this basis to the development and testing of teaching materials and course modules.
The project is divided into seven work packages:
- Create a database of European journalism educations
- Establish conceptual framework and methodology
- Establish pedagogical framework and teaching material
- Develop online platform (young foreign reporters)
- Pilot test: Teaching labs
- Quality check, dissemination, exploitation
DMJX is responsible for Work Package 4: Pedagogical Framework, from which the concrete output will be a set of descriptions of model courses, and a catalogue of detailed recommendations for journalism schools' course development.
