Journalism education should be even more disrupted and disruptive than journalism, the industry. Lately, inspired by discussions I’ve had with a school working on a new program, I’ve been trying to organize thoughts about changing what we teach and how we teach it — some are relevant to what I do at CUNY, some aren’t. When I use the first-person plural here, I’m referring to journalism education broadly, not one school. Since Howard Finberg of Poynter and Eric Newton of the Knight Foundation have been sharing their thoughts, I thought I’d share mine. To be clear: This thinking doesn’t go far enough. It’s in process. That’s why I’m sharing it: to get you to push me.
