The 4th Conference of the ECREA Working Group on Research in Journalism and Education for Communication will take place from 10 to 11 May.
The “Trial and Error II – Innovation and trends between the classroom and the company” will take place at the University of Minho and will discuss how to prepare students for an increasingly complex media field. The organizing committee aims to discuss “how to prepare students for an increasingly complex media field. We have to switch from telling ‘how the world is’, to training ‘how to relate to a constantly changing world’. Not only do we need to keep up with ongoing innovation, we need to contribute to innovation as well as foster professional legitimacy in a converging media field”.
The organization is in charge of CECS, through researchers Sandra Marinho (Coordinator), Madalena Oliveira, Luís António Santos and Elsa Costa e Silva.
