New Skills for the Next Generation of Journalists


The second multiplier event in Bucharest

At the end of phase2, the representatives of NEWSREEL presented the four developed syllabi in the framwork of a 'Future journalism curricula workshop' . The program was held at the Law Faculty in the University of Bucharest on 25 September 2018 and was opened by Prof. Mihai Coman, Dean of the Faculty of Journalism and Communication Studies. First of all, the representatives of NEWSREEL introduced their syllabi for the local and invited international audience of academics and practitioners. NEWSREEL was represented by:

Gábor Polyák and Annamária Torbó, University of Pécs, Hungary - Ethical challenges of the digital public sphere
Ana Pinto Martinho and Miguel Crespo, ISCTE - Lisbon University Institute, Portugal - New business models of journalism
Tina Bettels-Schwabbauer and Nadia Leihs, Erich Brost Institute, Germany - Collaborative journalism
Emilia Șercan and Marian Popovici, University of Bucharest, Romania - Data journalism and data visualization 

At the afternoon two round table sessions were held with the title of 'Challenges and opportunities for journalism education in 2020'. In the first part the needs of newsrooms and journalists, while in the second part the offer of journalism schools and the perspective of academics were in focus. 

We will implement some changes based on the feedbacks of the event, and the developed syllabi will be available soon in our project website!
