Journalism education: the future
Horgan, John
How can we decide what journalism education should look like in the future if we do not know what journalism itself will look like in the future? The prophets of doom are everywhere. Some of them may yet be proven right. But history has a way of making some of the prophets of doom eat their words, if they stick around for long enough, and it is certainly true that some of those prophets who have been most excited by technological change have ended up with egg on their faces. As my colleague James Curran pointed out recently, the CD-ROM, the camcorder, and cable television were all going to revolutionise the world of communications, but somehow it didn’t happen quite like that.
