Is journalism training in your region behind the times?
As the Internet and new communication technologies continue to alter and revolutionize the media, concern is arising in many parts of the world that journalism training isn’t keeping up with the changes in the profession.
Moreover, journalists who live in countries without a strong IT infrastructure are having a difficult time developing new media skills on par with their global counterparts.
In your region, do you think journalists are adequately prepared to work in today’s media environment? Does the training provided by journalism schools and professional organizations meet the challenges presented by an era of new media? If not, what needs to be done?
