The Teachers’ Conference 2018 will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, on October 18 & 19. The colleagues of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki are working on the programme. The theme of the conference will be announced at the beginning of 2018.

All EJTA-members (100%) will participate in the Research project on ‘Journalistic Roles, Values and Qualifications in the 21st century; how journalism educators in Europe view the future of a profession in transition.’ In the second week of January 2018 the link to an online questionnaire will be sent to 78 contact persons in 28 European countries. The major outcomes of this study will be presented at the 5th World Journalism Education Congress in Paris, July 9-11 2019.

Organised by EJTA-member European Journalism Centre, and powered by the Google News Lab, this one-day free-to-join media event will look back on 2017; a year in which the relationship between politics and journalism changed forever. Under the theme A Year is a Long Time in Politics, the event will explore the questions: How did global political upheaval shape the way journalists covered the news? And how have evolving political, investigative and data journalism practices changed the face of politics? What will 2018 bring?

Registration is free and works under a first-come, first-served base: News Impact Summit website.  The event takes place on Monday 4th December.

News Impact Summit is a media innovation events series that brings together international media experts with local news communities to focus on how new technology, tools and methods are changing the way journalists work in the newsroom.
