Plymouth conference takes shape
A programme has been released for the Jeanz annual conference, hosted
by the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki, December 4-5.
The theme is The Odd Couple: Academic Degrees versus Skills-Based
Training. Or how journalism training in New Zealand is affected
by the growing demand for degrees.
Papers on the conference theme look at unit standards, at the future
place of journalism in universities, and at the importance of hands-on
experience for tomorrow's journalists. Other papers and presentations
focus on training indigenous journalists, press
freedom, war reporting, digital media, Uni Tavur, Pacific Journalism
Review, and mainstream news/journalism education.
