A Special Edition of Journalism Education – It’s the story that matters!

It didn’t take me long to decide on a topic, since “the story”, how we tell stories and how we teach storytelling constitute dominant and consistent themes in conversations with colleagues – both in industry and the academy – as well as a personal enthusiasm.”
