Educating Generation Z: challenges, changes and anticipating the future of journalism education
The AJE UK Annual Conference returned to a live event this June. It focused how to educate Generation Z and how journalism educators in Ukraine have responded to the war in their country.
We heard from journalism educators and researchers about preparing our students for the future challenges and how we can respond to them as educators.
While much of our attention in the last few years has been on the pandemic, the last few months have witnessed the invasion of Ukraine – our keynote speaker was Prof. Oleksandra Hondiul, Lecturer in Journalism and New Media Chair, Institute of Journalism, Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University. Prod Hondiul shared her experiences of how she and her students responded to the war.
Our speakers’ slides will be uploaded below along with videos of their papers.
