NEWSREEL2 - NEW TEACHING FIELDS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF JOURNALISTS
The aim of this research was to introduce the new project fields in more depth and lay the foundations of the curricula and e-learning development. The nine project fields are: Storytelling in social media; Graphic journalism; Improving democratic sensibility; Covering migration; Foreign coverage; Journalism for voice-activated assistants and devices; AI and journalism, robot journalism and algorithms; Verifying and analysing fake news; Debunking disinformation. In the report we covered:
- the current status of these types of new skills and tools of journalism in the media field of the partner countries,
- the main media outlets and journalists that are using these skills and tools, some outstanding examples of these types of journalism,
- the needs of journalists and market players regarding the innovations in journalism education.
Therefore, we made an analysis of literature on the given topics, and interviews with four or five journalists per field from the participating countries. If you are interested in our results, you can reach the full research report here:
The aim of this research was to ground the development of syllabi and teaching materials in the project fields (data journalism, collaborative journalism, new business models of journalism and ethical challenges) that can be incorporated in journalism education at universities and that are able to reflect on the needs of the stakeholders in the participating countries. The initial conditions – e.g. the state of journalism education regarding new skills and tools of journalism, the spread of journalistic performances based on new skills and tools – are different in the participating countries, and these are not necessarily mapped in published analyses. Therefore, during NEWSREEL1, we have done interviews with representatives of the selected universities' journalism departments, as well as with practising journalists in each country. Besides the interviews, we have also analysed the curricula of the selected departments, especially that how our four specific fields are integrated into the education.
