The journalism degree programme in changing times
Changes in the journalism profession have made journalism degree programmes uncertain about the right course to set. Which skills and knowledge do journalists today need? HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht is conducting research on the above.
The objective of this research is to arrive at a ‘persona’, a description of characteristics and skills that journalism lecturers need in these changing times.
This research is ongoing. Once completed, the research results will be summarised here.
01 January 2018 - 01 January 2020
This research analyses how lecturers in the Journalism programme handle changes in their profession. We do this using the stimulated recall method, in which we make video recordings of teaching situations, which are then analysed with the teachers in question afterwards. We use the above to develop a profile of the journalism lecturer.
