About this item
Global Journalism Education in the 21st Century: Challenges and Innovation empowers journalism educators to strengthen the field of journalism by preparing students to “do journalism”—as citizens and/or journalists—in the most effective, professional manner possible.This volume is a one-stop scholarly yet practical/approachable reference book for educators, trainers, journalists, media activists, policymakers, foundations, nongovernment organizations, students, and others with a vested interest in quality journalism. It sheds light on the emerging field of comparative journalism education worldwide by building on past research and offering conceptual, theoretical, empirical, and practical insights into where the field has been, where it currently stands, and where it seems to be heading.Global Journalism Education’s findings are based on the combined expertise of many of the world’s top journalism education scholars through o Descriptive case studies highlighting journalism education and practice-related challenges and innovations in a wide range of countries from six continents; o Conceptual chapters examining the past, present, and predicted future of global journalism education and its influence on the profession; o Empirical case studies detailing classroom innovations worldwide; o A concluding chapter with 10 global journalism education predictions; and o An epilogue highlighting final observations regarding the current state of Western journalism education bias, ethnocentrism, and related provincial thinking and efforts to de-Westernize global journalism education and broaden journalists’ understanding of the world they live in.
