‘The current situation of journalism calls for a reset. Journalism finds itself in the middle of a drastic transition from working in the context of a mass media model to working in the context of a network model. This network model has clearly different infrastructural characteristics, and it also requires a different type of journalism.’ – Dr Nico Drok
Nico Drok needs little introduction to journalism educators and certainly not to EJTA members, having been an inspiring EJTA President and Board member for many years.
With his most recent publication, a survey done for the World Journalism Education Council, he researches together with Rolien Duiven on ‘How journalism educators around the globe view the future of journalism’.
The publication advices on a public-oriented type of journalism, with a focus on: getting the facts right, getting the connections right and getting the perspectives right.
The WJEC survey can be downloaded.
