AJE Annual Conference & AGM 2020: Engaged, collaborative, shared – How should we prepare students for a very different kind of journalism?

AJE Annual Conference & AGM 2020

December 4, 2020, 10.30am -1.00pm, online via Zoom.

Engaged, collaborative, shared: How should we prepare students for a very different kind of journalism?

We are delighted to share with you some of the research papers presented by AJE members whose work was accepted for the June 2020 AJE Annual Conference, on the above theme, which we were unable to stage.

The conference attracted a wide range of papers from AJE members across the country and we will share their research at an event in late January 2021.

On December 4 however, some colleagues will present their work with you:

Lily Canter and Emma Wilkinson (Sheffield Hallam University)

Podcasting as a multifaceted teaching and learning tool: Enhancing students’ employability skills via production and content

Myra Evans, University of the West of England

New pedagogical models of learning: Preparing students to enter the newsroom through immersion into a Community of Practice teaching model.

Jenny Kean and Abbey Maclure, Leeds Trinity University

“A modern-day equivalent of the Wild West”: preparing journalism students to be safe online

Beth Wood and Ivana Ebel, Derby University

Engaging Post-Millennials: the impact of new digital ecosystems on news values and journalistic consumption for the next generations

AJE AGM 2020

Please note that a short AGM will take place at the end of the research paper presentations and discussion and we look forward to welcoming as many members as possible attending.
